If I use stock Bosch or NGK dual electrode plugs, do I need to set the gap.
If YES then what's the gap setting?

Thanks

They're pregapped so they don't need to be. Look at the box it should say what the gap setting is somewhere on it. But dual electrode = you don't have to gap.

The box says, it does not require gapping. I just installed Bosch and seems to work great. TGime for a test drive i guess.
