SPARK PLUG GAP

I WAS WONDERING WHAT THE GAP IS TO BE SET AT IN A STOCK ZUK 1.3 MOTOR? ARE THERE ANY PLUGS THAT WORK BETTER THAN OTHERS?

Do a search on spark plugs. There was some talk a while back about it. i found the NGK plug to work OK. Jim

Re: SPARK PLUG GAP

I found the walmart brand works fine for me, I used split fires in my explorer didn't notice a difference. Used a split fire in my quad and I could feel it so you might try paying for the split fires and see if they work.

Re: SPARK PLUG GAP

bosch platinum +4 is good. easier starts and better throtle response but i believe it does not increase power

Re: SPARK PLUG GAP

I'm running Autolite copper cores at .030 and their great. I had a set of Splitfires....CRAP.....I had a cracked electrode after 5000 miles and went through the whole system and a intake manifold before I checked my "brand new" plugs I was pissed. Don't waste your money on "performance" plugs you will not notice a difference. There is just not enough spark in the stock system to make them worth the extra $$. Just my .02

I understand that the Directhits thingy works but we don't have it in Malaysia so I can't comment about it. it can be seen at

Re: SPARK PLUG GAP

NGK are the best plug. They are what the engineers designed the motor to use. Just like jeeps and champion plugs.

Re: SPARK PLUG GAP

Nowhere, don't know if this would cause problems on a zuk but chevy/ford guys report 2mpg increase with .060 gap and $40 MSD 40Kv coils. When i get around to ordering a coil i'm going to run .06 and see what happens. This coil prob won't last much longer anyway (FORD).


JEEP, it's what's for dinner.

Re: SPARK PLUG GAP

Seems with a larger gap, more spark area to light fuel and lower spark plug tip tempature. I'll try setting mine to like .04 tonight..
