NGK spark plugs vs. Pulstar

I want to put new spark plugs in my truck and am debating between the two. Pulstar seems really impresive on its technology, but Ngk seems like it has been around for a while. What do you guys think? Anyone have either of these on you rides? Ifyou do did you put new coils in? Lets hear all the answers on this one.

ive read/ heard about the pulstar plugs cracking pretty bad, so i'd probably stay away from them. ngk or denso is probably the best plugs to run in these trucks. i changed plugs 2 weeks ago.......the stock ngk's were considerably more warn than the denso's......so i went with denso oem plugs........no problem with them.
you could run iridium plugs if you wanted to, but i'd stick with denso or ngk.

yeah....but that was on a chevy, where there are a number of different plugs that will work. you can try them if you want to....i just think denso or ngk will work better on these trucks than anything else, imo.

I personally bought the pulstar plugs and installed them . Then ran for 1000 miles and then suddenly I had a misfire , and my truck started misfiring from two pistons , piston 5 and 6 . I took them off and put the originals back on. Called pulstar and told them about the problem , they send me 6 brand new pulstarplugs I also told them that i had to pay a tow truck and a mecanic to put the plugs on , so they gave me a 25% discount for my next purchase. So finally my pulstar plugs arrived and I installed them once again and ran my truck for about 500 miles and my chk engine started flashing and suddenly my truck started misfiring again thx god I have a scanner . I verified the read out and it said misfire from piston 5 again. I decided to take them all off and went with the NGK irridium. and until now I have ram my truck for 3000 miles and no problem. I'm telling pulstar plugs are not worth it. I'm still waiting for pulstar to respond to my phone call and e-mails.
