This is a generic question about spark plug gap size.
For a given motor, Corvair or otherwise, with everything in good working
order and a good ignition system, what is the impact of running a smaller vs
a larger gap size, say for arguments sake .030 vs. 035?
Some of the things that come to mind include:
Does it impact fuel economy?
Does it impact torque?
Does it impact max RPM?
What do race cars have - wider or narrower gaps?
Does spark plug gap size matter when the vehicle is under load?
Overall, does it really matter as long as a "good" spark is produced?
Thanks in advance!
