Well, the Motorcrafts SP-524 I received are double platinum, now you made me wonder if gapping em at 0.60 wasn't a little too much.
Just found on the net that their default gap is 0.51 .... hmmm, but then again, as I said before, they all came gapped different with one being even at 0.61


I ordered those just by asking Steve for sparkplugs for SVT, next ones I will get will be copper, but that's gonna be next year, when building turbo, f... yeah :D

Nope, you misunderstood. It is best to gap them at .60. I was stating that the cooper ones in general don't last too long, probably 10K miles on average. But you are fine. .60 is just for best spark.
