you might want to search more... pics aren't going to do anything for you, sparkplug gaps aren't really something that are going to be well documented with a picture.

in general, unless you have a reason to change the gap, you don't want to. larger gaps can actually increase power to a point, the smaller gap will help with SOME misfire issues if you increase boost, alot.
