You are watching: 2007 ford focus spark plug gap


What is the ideal gap to set the spark plugs at for a 02 Focus SVT? And also what are the finest plugs to use?
Stick through the Motorcraft plugs. Can"t go wrong through OEM replacements. IIRC the gap is .050". Just go to Ford and also pick up a set. They need to have the ability to look up in their database the correct gap for your plugs, and the majority of plugs come pregapped from the factory. Make sure you have actually a gap feeler (and also not among those ramped coin layouts, those points suck. Ideally you would have a metal plate feeler or angled metal tube feeler that would carry out the trick for you.Welinvolved the Jet, by the way!Where are you stationed? I"m on Ft. Lewis (TDY at Ft. Eustis for BNCOC).

Hey, both of you dudes... Thank you for your service!:thumbup:Oh yeah, I choose dbl plats, and low resistance cores, but OEM is great, too. If you have low resistance wires you deserve to over gap slightly to obtain even more spark.

Yea I haven"t heard anypoint poor about NGK V-Power so I went through those..I obtained a demon coil fill via 8.5 Live Wires but I still trying to discover a good gap for the plugs. Alot of DSM guys have been informing to to go ahead a gap at .040 - .045So i will provide it a swarm ..
Some say that you have the right to open up the gap to .060-.065 with the Screamin" Demon and LiveWires. IIRC Focus Fanatics Magazine (RIP) did a test and also they opened up up the gap to the .060 spec, and also had no difficulties, however most people advise against going that wide open up.
M1 Tanker? Sweet! My cousin Johnny was a Lt. via a platoon of M1"s out of Twenty-Nine Palms with the USMC. Good stuff! Anyway, Focus Fanatics magazine did open up the plugs up on an SVT through Screamin" Demon coil and also plugs, and also saw a acquire of a couple of whp at upper rpm ranges. Still remember the chart in grey, showing stock/via the wide-open plugs/s.d.c.p. side-by-side (or top to bottom?): IIRC it was 2-3 whp; don"t understand if that was SAE Net, or what temp/barometric it tested at--remember, elevation affects output.--Scott

Double Plats will always come pre-gapped. From what I"ve checked out at leastern. Stock for the Zetec is .052 I believe.

Yeah, I will not execute it on a svt motor. On my old zetec, I could gain ameans with it making use of a MSD coil and wires.But on my SVT through stock ignition, I gapped them at .065 to try to squeeze out a little power, and also i"m crack the white component of 1 or 2 plugs every 1K miles.So I only gap them at .050 now.
