Never heard of having to check for a gap. Once it's bolted in,that's it

The only time I've ever heard about something like this was due to some engines having cam walk, and the timing gear would destroy the front of the sensor. The remedy was to shim the sensor outward. Unless there is physical damage to your sensor, you should have nothing to worry about.
