If you gap one at 30 the other will also be at 30. Install and put pulley up to check that it clears the fireing ring. Be positive that there is no damage at all to the fireing ring especially bent anywhere.

Yes they are lined very close when the sensor is mounted. You just have to be very careful because those fireing rinds are very easy to bend.
