There's a sticker under the hood showing the gap. Most likely, it's .044

Factory gap is .044 as mentioned. The OEM NGK plugs usually come pre gapped at .044, but I would double check them before install.

I should have said at one time I gapped my plugs at .045. But it's been awhile. The last couple sets of NGK's I've gapped at .040. And now I'm being told for the SC I need to gap at .032. So depending on your mods something under .045 will meet your needs.

I've installed four sets of NGK 5306s. NONE of them was at .044. I had to gap every one of 'em.
