I recently changed from points to Pertronix Ignitor and Flame Thrower coil. They claim you can use a larger gap for better spark and fuel economy.
Does anyone know what larger sized gap is best, if any?

Stock Gap is 0.028
New NGK spark plugs
40,000 volt - 1.5 ohm Pertronix Flame Thower Coil
Pertronix Ignitor kit (base model - not Ignitor II or III)
New IPD 8mm spark plug wires

Consulted my cousin who is a racer and mechanic of foreign cars. He suggested I use a 0.035 gap, if there is misfire then back off to 0.032.
I was successful with 0.035 gap.
