1995 Mustang 3.8 plug gap question

Hey I just purchased a screamin demon coil pack, streethunder 8mm wires, and v-power NGK plugs. My car is stock and the manual says to gap at 0.052 but the screamin demon instructions say to open the gap to 0.065 should i do this? any input would be great thanks much

well you can gap them out, it wont hurt anything, i did .060 on mine, but i was told this really is not necessary to do so its up to you whether you want to gap them out that far or not

On the other side of the coin, I gaped mine .052 and the coil, plugs, wires all have performed great.
Congrats on the purchase.

I've also just purchased the NGK G-power plugs along with MSD 8.5mm wires for my 2002 mustang and was wondering about gapping them to. So basically anywhere between 0.052 to 0.065 is fine? I was going to put them in along with the CAI I bought a week ago.

No no, don't gap them out with factory coil pack, this thread was based on the screamin demon coil pack gapping recommendations, with factory I wouldnt go past .052
