    Spark Plug Gap

    Seems to me I recall seing a post by Sarge regarding the how to's for changing plugs and I thought the gap setting was in the same.

    I can not find that thread.

    Last weekend I changed out my wires and the manual had the setting at 1.5mm.
    I could not find a conversion table to save my life...and my gapping tool does not have mm equalivants.

    How to change spark plugs
    What heat range you got?
    1.5mm is about .060

    Based on a my constant monitoring via my diablo, I'm running @ 180 with a 160 thermostat. Ever since I insalled the breather filter and the catch can I've been running a bit warmer, which to me is fine because i was going to change my fan settings to let her run a warmer.

    so ya know, I about given up on using my diablo to lean up my WOT which is still a bit rich...
    but what's the definition of insanity, doing the same thing twice expecting a different outcome...

    as soon as uncle sam comes through (i still have two deductions) i will probably breakdown & buy the HPTuner software. I've found an excellent article on how to's

    which plugs are you thinking, i had ordered pedders parts from gravana. they screwed shipping them and sent me some jba wires as a "we're sorry"
    are those wires any good?

    I haven't dealt with their plug wires before.

    All you need to do is take a ohm meter to them and measure the resistance and compare to your measurement from the stock wire.

    Our wires are sooooo short it's hard not to get a aftermarket wire that isn't better than stock.
