Default Back to the spark plugs again...

Did everyone leave their plugs gapped the same as before stage 1? I had constant hessitation before install with plugs gapped at .050,.045 &.042. I replaced the plugs after stage 1 install with OEM Chumpions and gapped at .050 and no more hessitation. But what I am wondering is, i'm thinking of tinkering with the MBC installed. I want to see if I can keep it boosted to 14 thru redline. Does this seem unreasonable?[:I] Higher boost should require smaller gap, correct[:I]At this point now, it is running better & smoother than the day I brought it home, so i don't want to screw it up[?]. I know, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.[^] I let the Mrs. drive it today and no more grief about cost! [:X][8)]

i would regap the plugs if you are planning on +boosting. 14PSI is a VERY conservative increase, you should have no problems. How much does the stock boost go up with the Stage1? I'd imagine you could probably boost higher w/ stage1 and MBC, than w/out S1 due to the higher flow injectors.
My Cruiser is slow. I love the law.
