    I used to run .060-.065 with my MSD box, wires, coil, etc. Now that I went to FI from carb and don't have the MSD I run .02-.03 over what stock specs is for the TPI.

    I got the AC Delco rappid fire ones and it said NOT to gap them. They were off from what the blazer normally uses but I didnt gap them and they work great. If you have platinum plugs dont gap them because it can mess them up.

    Gapped mine at .035, .045, and .055, no difference with any of them. Stock HEI. You could probably gap up to .080 without noticing any problems.
