Hey, if your car is mostly stock with stock or close to stock boost just use the stock specs that you will find under your hood.

My car is pretty modified. I used Autolite 103 non-platinum spark plugs with .035 gap. Factory spark plug gap specs are slightly more, but I don't remember specific numbers.

The higher the boost the smaller the gap. .035 for high boost and a colder plug like the autolite 103. I ran stock plugs with .045 before up the boost

I am runnig a 10% pulley as of today and was curious if i need to change my gap. I don't know what gap they are set right know because the plugs where changed last year before i owned it. I have only had it for 2 months.

I run about 15# of boost and still use the stock plugs and stock gap of 0.054 Mine is a mustang motor with the SC blowr so thast why my boost is a little lower, I am running a 15% OD as well.
