You are watching: 2003 ford focus spark plug gap


What is the finest gap to set the spark plugs at for a 02 focus SVT? And likewise what room the finest plugs come use?
Stick v the Motorcraft plugs. Can"t go wrong v OEM replacements. IIRC the void is .050". Simply go come Ford and also pick up a set. Castle should have the ability to look up in their database the suitable gap for your plugs, and most plugs come pregapped from the factory. Make sure you have a space feeler (and not among those ramped coin styles, those points suck. Ideally friend would have a metal plate feeler or angled steel tube feeler the would perform the trick because that you.Welcome come the Jet, by the way!Where room you stationed? I"m ~ above Ft. Lewis (TDY in ~ Ft. Eustis because that BNCOC).

Hey, both of friend dudes... Say thanks to you for her service!:thumbup:Oh yeah, I choose dbl plats, and also low resistance cores, however OEM is good, too. If you have low resistance wires you have the right to over space slightly to get an ext spark.

Hey, both of friend dudes... Say thanks to you for her service!:thumbup:Oh yeah, I favor dbl plats, and also low resistance cores, yet OEM is good, too. If you have low resistance wires you deserve to over gap slightly to get much more spark.
Yea i haven"t heard noþeles bad about NGK V-Power so i went v those..I gained a demon coil pack with 8.5 Live Wires however I tho trying to uncover a great gap because that the plugs. Alot of DSM guys have been informing to to go ahead a void at .040 - .045So ns will give it a shooting ..
Some say the you deserve to open up the gap to .060-.065 through the Screamin" Demon and also LiveWires. IIRC emphasis Fanatics newspaper (RIP) go a test and also they opened up up the void to the .060 spec, and also had no difficulties, yet a lot of human being advise versus going that broad open.
M1 Tanker? Sweet! my cousin Johnny was a Lt. With a platoon the M1"s the end of Twenty-Nine Palms through the USMC. An excellent stuff! Anyway, focus Fanatics newspaper did open the plugs up on an SVT with Screamin" Demon coil and plugs, and also saw a gain of a couple of whp at upper rpm ranges. Tho remember the graph in grey, showing stock/with the wide-open plugs/s.d.c.p. Side-by-side (or peak to bottom?): IIRC it was 2-3 whp; don"t understand if the was SAE Net, or what temp/barometric it experiment at--remember, elevation affects output.--Scott

Double Plats will constantly come pre-gapped. Indigenous what I"ve watched at least. Stock for the Zetec is .052 ns believe.

Yeah, i won"t perform it ~ above a svt motor. On mine old zetec, I could get away with it utilizing a MSD coil and also wires.But on my SVT through stock ignition, i gapped them in ~ .065 to try to squeeze the end a small power, and also i"m crack the white component of 1 or 2 plugs every 1K miles.So i only gap them in ~ .050 now.
