Indeed. Mine were off right out of the box. Use a feeler gauge.

Mine were all 030-032 out of the box so i didn't touch them. Quick install. Too bad I found oil on one plug during removal. No misfires or running rough. Hopefully just a spark plug well gasket.

So are copper plugs a thing of the past? i know iridium plugs last longer. I just always bought copper plugs for my LSJ, i just assumed it would be the same for the LNF because they burn better and have better conductivity.

Nothing works better than OEM plugs for a lnf. Also sometimes its best to re-gap them to .032-.030 to avoid spark blowout when tuned or are tuned

Spell check changed your "regap" to "regal", just didn't want him to get confused. I see you edited it.

Actually I've seen guys having problems with at the 600whp levels using copper plugs on a lnf and playing with gaps because of spark problems at high levels of boost
