Hi all

Was wondering what the factory sparkplug gap actually is (#.##)and what the "best" gap (#.##) for a '94 E320 I-6 motor?

I've read that a slightly wider gap vs. factory setting has all good benefits and no downside?

I would not change from factory settings on this engine. The reason is as follows. When the ignitions age, the resistor ends break down. The harder it is to fire a plug, the easier it would be for a misfire to occurr.

I think the factory setting is .9mm.
