Nice work on the CRTs.

If you are looking for a gap of 220k then the first prime can range from -220k to 0 and the second prime can range from 0 to 220k. If you want to maximize your chance of finding a gap of 220k you probably want to run your CRT code for a gap size larger than 220k.

220k is roughly a merit of 28. I have a code that will calculate the probability of finding a gap greater than a given merit for a primorial and offset. I ran it for the 3 CRTs above and /7#, /11#, /13#, /17#.

CRT_6776 is better than CRT_6751 for merits > 26. CRT_6727 is worse than the other 2 CRTs for all merits (it might be better for some cases below 20).

7993#/7# is best below 20
7993#/11# is best from 20-26
CRT_6776 is best from 26-30
7993#/13# is best from 30-37
7993#/17# is best above 37

The /Q# cases were computed with A mod Q# = 1 but there is some variation among the offset chosen. For /11# I ran for offsets 1 and 13 which were one of the best and worst cases. The offset of 1 gives about a 4% improvement over 13.
