Team roush upgrade questions?

After doing the team roush upgrade is it recommended to:
1) add its own independent ground wire from the icm?
2) gap the spark plugs to .045?
3) what should the timing be set at?
I haven't done the nutter bypass yet just the roush upgrade.

The ICM and disributor need to be grounded.
Yes on the plug gap
Team Rush timing is at 8 BTDC

You need to do the nutter if you set timing to 8 BTDC, otherwise you have to time as per factory specs, @ 1600 RPM etc and use the figures published in the factory manual.
