Use the NGKs in my signature. Spend the money on iridiums and never have to buy them again (unless you breach 100k mi)

For what they cost, iridiums I've had were always pre gapped and featured a sleeve to protect them durring shipping.... But you did ask...

Spark plug gap 0.8-0.9 mm (0.03- 0.04 in.)

The iridums will not come smashed as they are protected by a sleeve. Regular gap tools will damage the diode, so careful about that.
