Going by a Thou to mm calculator thats 0.66mm gap which is smaller than the recommended 0.8mm... Don't think thats going to cause you to many issues.

yea he gapped them smaller to help it and he said it did a bit but still misses like f*ck between 3500-4500. I'm thinking try the #6 plugs gapped a bit small or a bigger coil ?

You shouldn't need to gap them smaller. 0.8mm gap would be fine on your setup and your spark plugs are already gapped smaller than that.

Intercooler piping isn't sitting on or to close to your dizzy? Have you inspected it to see if theres any cracks ect?

Start withe the simple things,Plugs leads etc,Once that is out of the way start on the harder more expensive ones,Just get copper top plugs as they are still one of the best and also the cheapest,Everyone may at some stage has had a new item go faulty(such as leads plugs dizzy cap)

Cheers Marty

gotten worse. chucked some 6 heat range spark plugs in at normal gap and still terrible. might gap them down and see if that helps then get new CAS and dizzy cap. is there somewhere to get them new ?

---------- Post added 26-12-12 at 21:14 ----------

was just thinking if it doesn't miss at the same rev ranges n neutral then shouldn't be the CAS or dizzy ??

gapped the 6s down and still shocking. now missing not almost all of the time and no chance under boost. but in neutral, no load revs cleanly. wtf does that mean? lack of fuel? but I stinks like fuel when it misses. no power figure got road tuned but tuner said maybe 180kw

after changing the CAS twice and mucking around for half the morning i thought i better check to see if it had an ok amount of fuel since my gauge never works. topped it up with 20 litres and it kicked straight away. feeling like a mega chump but just glad it runs. feel free to bash the **** out of me

was painting up the window surround matte black and liked the look of it gloss black before it was drying, so grabbed a can of gloss and gave it a few coats. unsure how if i like it or not in the dark will have to wait till morning.
