i know that everyone says that the spark plugs are pregapped but i just want to be on the safe side and make sure they are set properly before installing them into the car. Ive already search around but neither of the threads that i found provide a specific number for the gap.

if anyone knows, please let me know.

thanks

I use the stock NGKs and have never gapped them. I know some of the guys runnign a torbo or SC may gap them differently, but if you have the normal chip/intake.exhaust like I have, and you're using the NGKs, you don't need to gap them.

Unfortunately they are not NGKs :(

i wouldve checked the gap on the ones i took out but they were gapped wrong and the cause of my initial problem...i hope....kinda.

even if they were NGKs, i would still want to check them just to be sure. lol.
