.054 Spark Plug Gap Missfire
I just did the spark plugs and i have always ran the gap at .045, well i did them this time at .054 and theres a miss when the engine is in load. Most of the people here runs them at factory gap but i guess mine dosent like it, this isnt normal is it. Is it because im running a higher compression 10.1?

.45 or bust on N/A car

I had a similar problem. I had plugs that were gapped at .54, and I had a real bad misfire in the higher RPM's. I gapped em down to about .37 and it fixed them! With an N/A car you might not need to gap them that small. .45 for an N/A car sounds about right.

.040 i think is a good gap for nitrous, how much are you spraying?
04-13-2010, 01:08 AM #9
I am not spraying yet..but I will only be spraying a 75-shot, if that. Because I am still on a stock shortblock, so after the carb and spray I'll be at 460-475ish to the wheels.
On the new shortblock.. 100-150 and will gap them closer for that.
I have the nitrous kit just chillin in my room, waiting for my carb'd swap to get done so I can put it in!

You definately have to make a thread of you carb swap, not many people go with that route but its going to be interesting!
