On the hotter spark

Do we trust the data and research of a vendor or an advertisement? W/o getting too far off track with that. In any case, the gap "should" be corrected as it gets large. Leaving them gapped incorrectly will work the coils/ignition system a bit more over time.

data and research are the way to go. that is why i use the iridium plugs.
i have friends that race for a living that have over $240,000
tied up in 6 engines (well over 2 million for the whole race team)
they use plugs that you don't get at your local auto parts store
but the plugs they use look a lot more(center electrode) like iridiums than a standard copper plug.
like i said use what you want, its like which oil is better you get a lot of answers.
