NGK Iridiums. About $6.50/plug, but well worth it.

Motorcraft copper plugs, #AZFS-22C (one step colder than stock), gapped to .042". Around $1.53 net/each from Steve at FORDSVTPARTS. It's what I'm running with my JRSC + BBK, as recommended by Mr. Jackson.

Did OJ recommend to gap them at .42? I have them and have them gapped to .35 and seems to work well. Although Im about due for some new ones.

^^^Stock gap is .051
NA applications: Can be run all the way to .060, which is where I have mine at the moment.
FI applications: Need less gap (.035-.042) to keep the spark from blowing out.

Yes...

Sent an e-mail to O.J. with some specific questions when I was installing my blower, and that's what he recommended - .042". I know others may gap more or less than this to suit their application, but .042 seems to work fine for mine.
