    This is normal.
    I appreciate the info. Now on the selecting a catch can. From the looks of things on this forum everyone has their own opinion. Looking for quality, durability, and ease of operation. Effectiveness is key as well.

    (Pre-$hit show) RX catch can, UPR Mega Can, or Full Race Can seems to be the consensus.

    I personally run a UPR can because of the Customer service from Joe. Any issues or problems I have had in the past 2 and half years has been addressed and dealt with in a timely fashion from him.

    I feel like the UPR setup is the easiest to install as well as it comes with all hoses and connections needed. Where did you buy it from? You can get them everywhere

    Easy peasy done
    Is it safe to run 0.28 without a tune? Gunna change mine in the near future I just bought plugs today. Tune is in the near future; more curious if that gap is satisfactory for the time being.

    Yeah its safe. You can actually mess around with the gap to find where she likes it best. .028-.030 seems to work pretty good.

    Since there hasn't been a new thread on spark plugs lately, I'm sure one will pop up. Maybe stating it here will keep another useless thread from being created.



    New guy: Hey, just rolled over 90K miles and got a misfire code. I assume I need to change out the spark plugs. What plugs should I get?

    Annoyed Forum Members: SP534, gapped to .028-.030

    New guy: Ok, even though you just stated to gap to .028-.030...why not just close the gap tighter, wouldn't that eliminate misfires and rough idles altogether?

    Annoyed Forum Members: SMH...wish Ford4Thot was still around.

    I just changed mine at 130,000 miles. They were worn and had .035 to .045 gap with rounded electrodes. I set the gap at .028 and have put 5000 miles on them. No misfires and it idles smoother. Stomp the pedal and it pulls hard.

    After having confirmed that I needed a weep hole in the CAC and having done so, it was time to check the plugs.

    Old plugs a 48k miles.




    Gap was around .042 and I'm off today sooooo. New plugs and boots, gapped at .028. We'll see how it plays out.
