Question:
I have the alta pulley kit, 15% and step colder single Prong plugs from alta. what should the gap be? Does alta send them out pre gaped, because i did not check them before i installed them.....
No if you got the kit from outmotoring it DOES NOT come pre gaped you need to do em yourself. If you buy Beru Ultra X multi electrode plugs or anything but Denso plugs (because they are prone to fail and take your motor with them) they don't need to be gaped .

I think most of the bad press on these came from the plugs that use to be sold with them, every article where these were a problem had Denso plugs which were the real weak point in the system.

does gap vary with or without a pulley or should it always be OEM spec?

Cole, just hit this up, while on my lunch brake this is what outmotoring recomends, if you have anyother questions I'm sure it says it in the paper work you got with the kit.

"The voltage increase is enough that plug gaps need to be opened up to .06 inch"

Gap isn't determined by the voltage.... It is determined by AFR, altitude, compression ratio, forced induction, etc.

Too small of a gap - weak spark more likely to foul - misfire
The gap in the middle - Strong and happy spark
Too large of a gap - may not fire off every cycle - studder/misfire

Yes correct, but the quote came from the website directly hence the " " marks if you would like to read it yourself you can find it here, I simply copy pasted what I have read for myself
