Just a couple drops of the WD-40 overnight hopefully will loosen the plugs. The name f the stuff to put on the threads of the new plugs is called Anti-seize. The head is aluminum and the plugs are a different material and when two different metals are together a long time they can almost become mated. The Anit-seize helps prevent that.

As fa as plugs and wires, please go to the top of the forum and click on the "search" word. Put "plug gap" into the search category and you'll see loads of threads talking about the ignition parts.

Don't know too much about the Prediator but I hear it's as good as Stage 1. Good luck.

Hope you also put dielectric grease on the plug boots and put in new wires that weren't stock ones...
