Spark gap w/Accel Coil?

Recommended Posts

If I get a SuperStock coil should I open up the gap a bit to .045-.050, or just leave it alone. Has anyone experimented with it?

I've just stuck with the stock gap on my cars when using the accel coil. You should be able to open it up a little bit more, but originally, I was just trying for a more stable spark under high-boost conditions. On a N/A car, I'd say go ahead and crack it to .050", if you want.

I have mine opened up to .050 and it seems to run better, the bigger the gap the more chance of a misfire, but the smaller the gap the weaker the spark, either way you go you trade one thing or another

Hi, I have done both. It really doesn't make a lick of difference that I can tell. The Accel makes it start in half a turn instead of a full turn and it does help when cold to open them up a little, but for the most part, you get a good spark either way, just my 2 cents worth, Bradd

And thanks for sticking to the subject. That seems to be a real problem around this forum.:D
