NGK G-Power question? and install

Installing tonight, just had a quick question...

they came gapped at about .038

website says they should be gapped at .044

box says do not gap, it is preset and you could damage em..

I'd check your owner's manual and see what the gap should be. You might have got some bad info off of the forums. If they were purchased for your specific vehicle and it says pre gapped then you shouldnt have to gap them.

checked em again with a better quality gap ring thingy and they are more like .040 which are what stock are supposed to be, so ill stick with that, plus they are not the type of plugs where the pole moves, so basically impossible to gap unless you want to bend it..

thanks guys

the manual has the suggested settings foe the factory plugs which are not ngk. the ngk's probably fit several other vehicles and are gapped for one of them. id go by what the website says.

Yes, please do report ongoing results. I'd switch to these if your results hold, your mpg is identical to mine.
