I'm trying to change plugs (for the first time myself) and attempted to adjust down from 28 to 26 as per APR. My adjuster didn't seem to have the strength to lower the strap and it also marked up the strap.

How do I close the gap and also, can I still use the plug

Tap it down lightly on a piece of wood or smooth surface. Also you might have been doing it wrong if you messed up your tool. You have to find the right angle and you'll bend it with little effort.

Hmm... Tapping down works.. Thanks! I re-read Ryan's first page and it seems if the plug is "marred" it's risky to use. So I went out and bought another plug.. Hate wasting money like that!

OK, Hyde. Finish my w/m set up. As I anticipated it consists of a two phase AEM kit with one nozzle installed before the TB and after the MAP. The nozzle is 500 cc/m flow (alternatives in the kit are 250 and 1000).

My goal is to try to get the best of the 98 RON (safety for track days) and 102 RON tunes (some racing here and there) with my current w/m set up.

I bought meth this morning and filled the tank without water. Was too anxious too buy water and make the mix and made a a couple of pulls with 100% on my way home.

Session 15 is 98 RON tune with start psi at 8 and full at 15
Session 16 is 102RON tune with start psi at 6 and full at 15

Note: Iridiums 8 gap 0.24" and 30 degress celsius (86 farenheit) outside

I know I should re test with w/m 60 meth 40 water by volume but I'd like to hear from you after this logs in 4th gear and read your thoughts.
