I think I will try .03 and see what happens. I wonder if these cars don't like platinum and iridium. My old Saturn hated platinum plugs, and everyone on the Saturn forum reported the same.
They don't like platinum. The OEM plugs are iridium and once properly gapped work reasonably well. There are better plugs for the car but they don't last as long, which is what eliminated them from consideration for OEM use.I think I will try .03 and see what happens.

Since it got bumped, I later swapped to the 8EIX with a new coil pack and still happy with the choice and said gap above. Low rpms in 6th gear no tune, handles just fine. Talking a level road cruising state not a low rpm wot state from car in front slowing down to turn. I'd simply go to 5th and be well enough off to speed back up to traffic flow again.I'm about a week from installing my 7EIX's which is the iridium version of the popular v power coppers. I'm on OEM plugs now so I can fully feel and appreciate the difference when I do swap em.
It's probably because the amount of drivers working on their own cars is dwindling. And any info they put there can be googled pretty easily. We wrench-turners are a dying breed.Wonder why they don't list that on the underhood label anymore.
