I read an article before about this on the Honda racing site that +/- 5whp was all the difference with and acceptable gap range. I would be interested to see if Steeda will make some coil packs for higher voltage.

Forgot to mention that if you gap to large you risk addition RFI in the spark plug. You would have to use a oscilloscope to really see that, but not sure if that is relevant with coil packs. Maybe suppressed.
