Default Screamin' Demon Coil, LiveWires & Champion

I've recently installed some Champion Double Platinum Plugs and I've noticed some erratic idling. Reading through the forum it was suggested that I also change the wiring to a much hardier/higher performance brand. I decided to pick up the LiveWires brand and at the same time since I'm changing out the plug wires decided to change out the Coil pack to the Screamin' Demon Coil. Now when I purchased the plugs the retailer suggested a gap of .040. So I gapped them at that.

Now every other online retail site says that you can gap your plugs at a whopping .065 if you install the Screamin Demon Coil Pack. My question is, what would you suggest gapping the Champion Double Platinum plugs at with the installation of the LiveWires and Screaming Demon Coil pack? Considering all options as stated above. I don't want to gap them wrong. I would like to achieve optimal performance and at the same time enjoy my ride. Please help me, greatly appreciate any and all insight.

Never mind folks, I think I found the answer by digging a bit deeper online and came across this link with gap specs.

Under the hood there's a sticker that says gap is 0.050, but there was a tech service bulletin for N/A PTs that said to gap at 0.040, and most turbo owners do that or even smaller gap.
