Question Plugs for 2008 TURBO

Sorry for resurrecting an old topic, but i think the last post on the plug guide was 2009 and i wanted to see if I got the latest info. From my understanding of one of NITROPT's old posts, the recommened plug for my turbo is the Champion #470 p/n REI4MCC5 @.042". Is this still good info?
Also, I've had a bad idle for years (mentioned in other posts), and while it was under warranty the dealer put new plugs and wires (factor grade wires I'm sure). But the idle is still rough and more noticable since i replaced the worn torque arms. I plan on changing the plugs/wires over myself this go around. Is it still possible to change without pulling the intake manafold? Maybe get by with just pulling the plastic cover off? And what is a good stock shelf brand wire from autozone (closest store to me) for a daily interstate driver?

The .042 gap is for the *best performance (*engine output under load) and maximum achievable MPG.
