What is the best gap to set the spark plugs at for a 02 focus SVT? And additionally what space the finest plugs come use?
Stick with the Motorcraft plugs. Can"t walk wrong with OEM replacements. IIRC the space is .050". Simply go come Ford and also pick increase a set. Lock should have the ability to look increase in your database the suitable gap for your plugs, and also most plugs come pregapped native the factory. Make certain you have actually a space feeler (and not one of those ramped coin styles, those things suck. Ideally friend would have a metal plate feeler or angled steel tube feeler the would carry out the trick for you.Welcome to the Jet, by the way!Where are you stationed? I"m top top Ft. Lewis (TDY at Ft. Eustis because that BNCOC).

Hey, both of you dudes... Give thanks to you for her service!:thumbup:Oh yeah, I choose dbl plats, and also low resistance cores, but OEM is good, too. If you have low resistance wires you have the right to over void slightly come get an ext spark.

Yea i haven"t heard noþeles bad around NGK V-Power so ns went through those..I acquired a demon coil pack with 8.5 Live Wires yet I still trying to discover a good gap because that the plugs. Alot that DSM guys have actually been informing to to walk ahead a gap at .040 - .045So ns will give it a shoot ..
Some say the you can open increase the void to .060-.065 through the Screamin" Demon and also LiveWires. IIRC focus Fanatics magazine (RIP) go a test and also they opened up up the void to the .060 spec, and had no difficulties, but a lot of world advise against going that large open.
M1 Tanker? Sweet! mine cousin Johnny to be a Lt. V a platoon the M1"s out of Twenty-Nine Palms through the USMC. Good stuff! Anyway, emphasis Fanatics newspaper did open up the plugs up on an SVT through Screamin" Demon coil and plugs, and also saw a obtain of a couple of whp at top rpm ranges. Still remember the chart in grey, mirroring stock/with the wide-open plugs/s.d.c.p. Side-by-side (or peak to bottom?): IIRC it was 2-3 whp; don"t understand if that was SAE Net, or what temp/barometric it tested at--remember, key affects output.--Scott

Double Plats will always come pre-gapped. Indigenous what I"ve checked out at least. Stock for the Zetec is .052 ns believe.

Some say that you deserve to open up the void to .060-.065 v the Screamin" Demon and also LiveWires. IIRC emphasis Fanatics newspaper (RIP) go a test and they opened up the void to the .060 spec, and had no difficulties, but a lot of of people advise versus going that vast open.
Yeah, i won"t do it ~ above a svt motor. On mine old zetec, I can get away through it making use of a MSD coil and also wires.But on mine SVT v stock ignition, i gapped them in ~ .065 to shot to squeeze the end a little power, and also i"m cracked the white part of 1 or 2 plugs every 1K miles.So ns only space them at .050 now.
