This isn't totally correct Alex. Voltage does let you get away with more gap. So if you have the ability to change dwell, and know how to change it, if you go to a coil on plug stuff like this does increase power at the plug. Thus letting you get away with a bigger gap even when running more boost. Still though for this exercise lets keep those gaps around .028-.030

Hope it works well for you. Dumped my pack to go back to the OEM as I had some folks have problems with their MSD/Screaming Demon ones.

You put 90k miles on your car in a little over a year? How many of those 90k miles is with the crappy coil?
