You more than likely need to lower it to .030 or maybe even lower depending on how much boost you run.

It might be just me but I just installed a MSD coil and there 8.5MM wires with some denso iridium plugs and a new CFM DSI lever and Immediately noticed that the idle was smoother, solved my hesitation on launch. MSD has never failed me in 3 different vehicles will never use any other then MSD!!

About 19psi is where I gapped mine down to .030, then again you may have a weak coil, weak plug or weak wire..... or maybe it just doesnt want to run that much boost... who knows... when it comes to boost there are all kinds of small factors that have large impacts on how the cars run.

Yes, I ran them for a year before going FI without the first problem.
