Default Quick Opinions on Spark Plugs please

Before I have someone tell me to do the searching first I tried that and come back with 750 hits on spark plugs, so let'* cut to the chase and just tell me what spark plugs to buy for my '01 SSEi to swap out tomorrow.

Thanks, now I am returning to my regularly scheduled beer.....

It usually depends on what sorta mods you have to determine which temp range plug to use.

NGK V-power TR55'* gapped at .055" should do nicely.

Not hurt. I've got them in the 95. Changed the 97 out to copper once I noticed temps rising. Makes a difference, so far it hasn't hurt anything though.
