well im gonna change my plugs today. what is the gap i should use? i have exhaust, cai, and a pro-m maf. do i use the factory recommended gap, or do i change it due to a few mods? or does the mods really matter?

well just changed my plugs. the old ones were gapped at .075 x2, and .070 x4. i gapped the new ones to .060. when i was done, i fired her up, and stood behind my car. it use to not be a smooth exhaust note, like kinda rough. now its smooth at idle, the exhaust sounds like one note. :) just put a new tank of gas in. gonna see if i do any better gas-milage wise.

The material deteriorates over time, this is why older plugs are usually 'gapped too high'. Most likely they started out at .060.
