well, this is kind-of a repost from an earlier thread(s). Meant for anyone who is sorta new. I would cite the original poster(s) but that was to long ago for my brain cells. The knowledge persists however.
For NA applications: Gapping to .060 is considered the maximum for the OEM COP (Coil on plug). A persons particular COP set may or may not support the maximum. Therefore, a consensus formed that, for almost all applications, a gap of .053 is the considered 'safe' mode gap. (FA applications have there own guidelines).
Again, I cannot recall which thread(s) I learned this in. But the info seemed solid based on numerous input from many members.

Ok, so I read so many opinions about so many plugs and gaps on so many different models that now I'm lost. I've got an 05 zx4st with the 2.3l pzev. Bone stock except for the stealth intake mod. I'm pretty sure its got the original plugs with 88k on them. What would be a good plug/gap to use?
