I recommend to stay with the OEM heat range. The posted information is very bad about dropping to a colder plug just because you have a Turbo PT!
Unless you do proper spark plug testing for heat range changing!

You starting gap should be .040-.042 using a single electrode standard spark plug.

Also read this!

To save you a lot of opinionated responses and my subsequent rebuttal please feel free to pm me anytime.

Todd aka Handy_Cruiser opinionated responses are usually from inexperienced or less then empirically informed members about the subject matter.
Your coil information would be IMO an opinion. If I choose to respond about transformers it will be fact and data not an opinion!

Carry on.......

The bolt in the trunk area drops the spare down - the threads you need to lube are below the trunk.
