Id still gap it to .8

You might think he can get away with 1.0 as he is only running 7psi, but obviously not as he is still having spark breakdown with .8 , so how is 1.0 going to help?

Have you p****d off the s**t blaster 2 yet?

Check out my gallery...

page two was my original setup, notice the blaster.
i was having spark breakdown.

on page one is my current setup, i went with the stock coil before i fitted the cooler. It eliminated the spark breakdown and the car went good. I ended up fiting the cooler cause i got it for a good price.

He would be able to run 7psi and a 1mm gap with no CDI.

How do you know its a spark problem? like he said nothing has made it change for better or worse. that spark plug with a 1mm gap and that coil and CDI will work with 7psi, i'd prefer to see a Blaster SS or blaster HVC coil on it as they both have a higher amp spark.

with such a small gap, the CDI and voltage that a blaster 2 will put out, there is a fair chance it could be a spark cavitation problem.

platinum or iridium tipped resistor plugs wont be helping either

If it wont run with what i said there are other problems.
