Default noob strikes again with a 95 jdm ?

Like the title? Need to know what type of spark plugs to buy. Also anything to look for when I change them and gap amount. Big ride coming up Saturday. What should I put on the checklist?

NGK PFR6B is what I used in my 93WRX (decat,small boost increase were only mods) gap was 0.65mm-0.7mm.

Went to 7B on my 98 Type R as boost was upped from 0.9bar to about 1.3bar.

I would say no plugs are pre gapped. and even if they are, they are probably closer to .030" or .032" not .028"... I would never trust a "Pre-Gapped" Plug.

The only pre-gapped plugs you shouldnt bother checking and regapping are non-jwire plugs which you shouldnt use in an ej20g anyways.

I'd say to go get the iridium plugs if you can. It seemed like the iridium ones were more consistant over the copper ones.
