To the best of my recollection, there hasn’t been much talk of turbo/supercharged engines that have been grooved, Simon, so you might be waiting a while.
Of course, you could go against your mechanic’s recommendation and try it on your vehicle to see what happens. It could make a difference, and it could be in a good way. We’re trailblazers around here, remember. I hope you choose to bravely take the chance, and report back here with positive results.

Hi everyone! I wanted to ask Ron if you remembered the Ford Mustang that had the supercharger? You did the groove to a couple of the Ron Fielder vehicles but i remembered the Youtube video of the Mustang GT. Since it was supercharged, it might be helpful to know if you had increased the gap on that car? Also, I wanted to ask my fellow gadgetmans if running a colder spark plug and increasing the gap would work for these forced inducted situations? My friends and I have been doing alot of turbo,nitrous, supercharged cars and anytime we increased boost or added a "kit" to a vehicle we would use colder plugs and the correct fuel octane to run safely. We never messed with the gap though. Putting my 2 cents in and hopefully I can contribute to the discussion. Keep grooving everyone!

I've been researching ignition lately, and I stumbled across an interesting quote:
"Current lights fuel, not Voltage"
Increasing the electrical current at the time of ignition burns fuel more completely... I've got to dig deeper into this.
That article references another one:
I haven't read it yet...
but given the Pogue Carburetor and this ignition system, It makes me wonder why the Vested Interest (big oil and government) conspired against Canadians 60+yrs ago, and why our own government continues to do so.
