Guys with access to VIDAS or whatever it is....it's friday, it's almost eleven, and I STILL haven't had my tea! gahh! I've gone stupid.

What's the gapping spec? I am trying to remember is it .6?

(anyone unfamiliar with Christine, she's a 98 s70 t5)

OE-spec gap for stock plugs on a T5 is 0.28 according to a quick google search.

That's bigger and 1/4". He means .028".

I don't know if that's the right spec but that's what he was going for.

.28 is the standard gap for HIDz equipped cars. It's high performance, and high intensity. Gotta be careful, it'll strip off your tintz with all the power it makes.

I think we got the gap issue figured out already, .028 inches is about equal to .7 millimeters.

Good luck with it Proie, holler anytime if you get stuck.

cheers

Have you done this yet? It takes about 10 minutes to change 5 plugs!

Or do we have to come up there and do it for you?

Ok really Kat, wtf?




Just kidding. I have had the plugs for my GMC in the console since the day after I bought it. 4000 miles ago.
