Fwiw - running headers has no real effect on combustion temps...ie, unless you're switching aspiration types or fiddling w/boost levels a spark plug temp range change isn't really necessary...but you'll be safe w/a 1mm gap, ~40 thousandths.

I was out at one event in Fremont. I rolled in with the Maro Boyz that night. There was two other white G8's out there but they were pretty stockish, and probably not as fast
