For those of you with Screamin Deamons

I'm probably going to order one in the next few days.

Question: What did you set your plug gap to? Did you do all the way at .065"?

Is there a better gap to do?

Gapped mine at .65 and got missfires, but another time I did it I had no trouble. The Iridium plugs didnt like the .65. I ran autolite double plats with them at .65 and it was alright. On Underdogs site it says 60-65. 60 would probably be alittle better insurance.

marginally better fuel economy but the engine runs so much smoother now... my stock coil had failed and the screamin demon was cheaper than a replacement stock one which is why i got one

Where does one acquire this "Screamin' Demon"? I may need a new coil. I am having intermittent trouble starting. It cranks but no ignition, then, it starts again.
