Oh man, that's brutal... Lol
I use the 534s at .03. With all the possible bolt-ons and GT turbos, they do well for me. Granatelli coils help too!
Good luck

Mulyhuntr you must not understand what i am asking, when moding you car it comes to a point that tuners all want to use ngk cooper plugs and with turbo or supercharged they may want to use a cooler plug and lower gap. I am new to ford, so thats why I ask, I come from high power chevy cars, 98 ss camaro 650 hp, ss chevy trailblazer 700 hp supercharged with cooler ngk cooper plug lower gap.

if you were to do a search, you’d find the oem plug gapped .026”-.028” is the way to go.

Not exactly sure how to take your question, but Yeah they do, especially since I was on original coils at 200k+ miles. Except for switching a couple that were getting misfire counts over time. Allot of maintenance and I held out on coils... Bad me...
I'm one to spend the extra money for anything that's going to advance things.
Thought?

Thought is those granatelli coils are nothing more than 3rd party turds with a sticker on them. If you think they are an improvement over OE coils or increased your power over what new OE coils would have, you would be mistaken.

Um, I watched the YouTube video they put up with Dyno charting, ect. And I was sold...

So are you saying I'm gullible? What are you saying? Where do you live? Line up? Let's go?

Really got me heated, maybe they are nothing but OEM with stickers. What's your experience?

Meanwhile, I'm going to bed!

I did search, and I know the oem gap , I am asking for gap for modded trucks and what heat range should be used. I know all this about chevy motors.

It is important to know what spark plug to use when modding your vehicle, copper, iridum, the gap, heat range, and oem plugs are not the choice of tuners,
