Default Anyone have anything other than .022 for NGK gap? - 07-27-2016, 06:49 PM

I am changing my plugs again.

I've been running the NGK 5992s (New number 95770) for about 2 years now. Always with a .022 gap. It's been running great.

Wondering if there are any other options when it comes to gap.

I run almost 25psi PEAK on stock turbos in map 6 with port injection on full e85.

Anyone run anything different?

If 0.022" is working well then there shouldn't be much benefit from using anything different.

Some big HP guys run .018, I'm running 26psi no taper and .022 has been fine.

Targets are:
2000: 18psi
3000: 21
4000: 23
5000: 25
5500: 26
6000: 26
7000: 26

This is my map for races, I daily on the highest Map 3 setting.

I've been meaning to crank it up to 30, fueling has looked good up to 28.

FBO minus inlets and E60 tune and run NGK's @ .022

You said yourself your **** is running fine, why change what's working is my point?

.22 is giving me issues on Pure stage 2 turbos @ 27 PSI. I reduced it to .20 and it fixed my misfires

Sure it is running fine but maybe there's some options for a better spark. Just looking to see what everyone else is running

If I get laggy timing on a cylinder I'll try gapping the plug down a little first. My coils are all new. If that fails I replace the plug.
I have one at 0.5mm - 0.0196" No issues since.

We run all our cars at .02" gap.

I was advised by a well-known tuner here, to gap my NGK's to .019. Stock snails at 21psi max, on e60. Any thoughts on that?
