Plugs out, what gap????

I am putting in Motorcraft AWSF22C plugs as we speak. They are gapped .042 out of the box. Is that fine on a stock 98GT motor? Need help quick!!

So your saying that I should gap them at .055, or the plugs should have come from Motorcraft at .055?

before you put the plugs in make sure you replace your heads with 99+ PI heads. and also some never-seize on the plug threads if you have copper plugs - > this will maximize your performance allowing you to get the best bang for your spark, and eliminate troublesome removal of your plugs in the future.
never-seize/anti-seize everything!! LOL!!

Gap them @ .54 for N/A, .35 for a power adder - is the rule of thumb I always follow.

Yep, used the anti-seize. Do does the anti-seal (not the singer help with compression, or to keep things sealed?
