Default What would be the best gap?

What would be the best gap on my new set of Autolite 104'* for not so mod'd 01 SSEi. But remember my 180 Therm will be going in at the same time and I hope to be getting a new pcm very soon. I'm also still deciding on FWI or a modified CAI.

From what i remember: stock plugs gap at .060", 1 heat range colder gap at .055", 2 heat ranges colder gap at .050"

The autolite 104'* are 1 heat range colder right??

1 heat range colder is correct.

I am not familiar with Magnecor. I still run stock sized wires and have had no problems.

Beldin'* from Napa are a great buy at around 50.00 and a warrantied for life.
