Maniac Stage 2 plgs gap

I got the NGK plugs from Amazon. They came gapped at .020. :O

The plugs I pulled looked to be gapped to .023" Does that sound right?

NGK 1422 plugs? I just installed some, and put them in with the "out of the box" gap. Didn't measure it either. I did the same last year, and had no issues with them.

Yes 1422's.

.020 is essentially no spark at all!

I sell hundreds of those spark plugs a year and I set them to .024”.

According to the NGK website specs, those plugs come with a 0.024” gap... I don’t know where you’re gettin the 0.020”
