Because it sends more power you can run a larger gap

I dont think you have to. But the bigger the gap the easier your engine can ignite the fuel and run better. But you have to have the power to actually get the spark to make the jump. lf you have to big a gap for the voltage that your coil pack produces the it will be a weak spark and wont ignite properly.

Can I run the same spark plugs or do I need higher heat ones?

Re: Screamin demond coil packs?

Every upgrade has been with the focus on fuel economy not performance. When I ordered tunes from BAMA I specifically said "I want the best fuel economy possible, even if I have to sacrifice acceleration for MPG"

I have no idea if they even read what I wrote, or if they are capable of writing a tune for economy? I would guess that they did based on my numbers.

Read my signature, it lists almost everything I have done, and most have increased my MPG to some degree or another.

Also, I haven't made a habit of doing hard launches or shifting at 5,000 RPMs. I generally baby my car and I usually drive the speed limit.

Was the bama tune worth it and I'm a little stingy with money and hate to spend money on something that does no good.. And with my auto tranny (yes I wish it was a 5) it's hard to pull that last few mpgs out..

Re: Screamin demond coil packs?

My Screamin Demon coil has been on the car for 3 years now and has been working flawlessly. I know that the Accell coil packs do not work on all model years. Did not work on mine. I got coil & wires same day. Granatelli MPG Plus wires have held up perfect as well. I still gap my plugs at .053 & use Autolite copper core plugs, FYI-

Here is a list for ya.
Windstar Upper intake with optional 65mm throttle body, gained about 4 mpg both city and highway.
Screamin Demon, forgot what wires and plugs I installed though.
SCT tuner (worth every cent and then some...) Gained 4 mpg with that too.
25% Underdrive pulley. That was worth 1-2 city MPG, no change on highway.
Shorty headers, high flow cat X-pipe, American Thunder catback (lost city and gained highway mpg)
