On fuel pressure for carb..........regulated to carb between 6 1/4 to 7 1/4 with NOS i'd say on the higher side of the window. You want a constant pressure from the pump of 15 to 18 psi to handle the demand. Speaking of.....what size fuel lines are you running. Make sure floats are set correctly.

Plug gap.......sorry, not a NOS person. IDK.

93' LX hatch, 460 w/150 plate, TH400, 9" w/ 3.60 spool. Best (so far!) of 9.40@ 146 mph with 1.40 spinning 60'
Reese,
Been saying single digit coming for 3 years.....guess I finally made it!

Run a standard copper plug gapped at .035.1-2 heat ranges colder than stock heat range when you hit it with a 150 shot.Pull 2 degrees of timing out of it for every 50Hp of nitrous. Keep the fuel pressure at no less than 7psi.
