Phil, you're right you can't gap the tri-tips (easily). I used to use Denso
Iridiums and gapped them at .03, and they worked fine for around 10,000
miles. However, they were expensive (about 45 bucks for 4 and quite honestly
didn't make any noticeable difference over the stock ones). The copper
tri-tips I bought (Bosch I think...) were 16 dollars for 4. For that kind of
money, if they need re-gapping, I'll just buy 4 more!!

Thanks everyone for the info.  Looking around, I think it's definitely time
to go with NGK - BKR6E's.  And yes, I've read .028 is right for chipped,
.028-.032 for stock hp.
Nicholas, what tri-tip plugs do you use? I've heard that tri tip plugs are
not a good option, as you cannot gap the tri tips. True?
