I'm not saying you're wrong or I don't trust you, but I'm kind of curious as to why the 2.0 spec came up when Amerritt124 was asking for 2.4 spec, which I know for fact to be .050 inches. The extra spark from the coil pack allows the bumping to the wider spec of .065, 2.4 DOHC. I personally run mine at .060 to be safe, seems to run better there. That Screamin' Demon coil pack is the only aftermarket one I'd trust, though.

I know you're right buddy, I've just never come across this info before! Crazy. So does this only apply to JA/JX/JR? I'm thinking this is model specific due to ecu?

The coil pack cross-references to anything that takes the standard 3 wire "flat pin" connector for 4 cyls.  Works on Neons and PT as well, as far as I know.  You'd probably just have to use the stock spec for them and widen a bit, most likely .040 to .045 or perhaps even up to .050 inch.  Might have to experiment for the best result, I don't see them list another gap spec.  They only show the PT (and therefore only the 2.4) as a compatible application, but I know better...hehe.  95 Neons/Stratus/etc. would have to convert from round pin as well as 96 "transition" cars.  Most cars 96 and all 97+ with the DOHC 4 cyl. should work.  I'm not sure if the SOHC is a different coil though.  I think it's not, just different wires.  It should work on any 2.4 DOHC, though.  So get a hot coil for that 2.4 Caravan, heh.

I have to wonder if this info is on the .ORG because in all the years of going there everyday researching 2.4L swaps I have never seen anyone mention the larger gap. The turbo guys have talked about it, but I'm pretty sure a lot of the n/a guys are running neon spec!

Well, as I said earler, turbo/blower/nitrous/high compression guys would be or should be running entirely different gaps anyways. If a fairly stock naturally aspirated 2.4 swap guy is running .035, that's pretty damn tight...heh. The wider gap gives a healthier spark and the stock coilpack can handle it. Screamin' Demon, even better.

Got my mini trip computer and woodgrain radio bezel today along with a chunk of the wiring harness and plug. Good write up here!

One question though. Is there a temp. sensor I'll need to buy and mount as well?

If not, where does it get it's temp signal from?

 

Just curious.
