I don't think you'll see any benefit from using a single
gap rather than the normal two gaps. After all, when
one goes to 4 or 8 or 12 gaps, it doesn't hurt the
performance. the number of gaps doesn't seem to
be all that critical.

Yes, it won't help there.

Not only is overkill, but quench time depends more on
when the system runs out of energy, than it does on the
mechanical dwell time. A *too-long* dwell time is bad
though, because it can permit refiring while the electrodes
are aligned, under certain conditions.
