Default which plugs?

Now that my crane wires our coming, which champion spark plug would be best? The copper, or the double platnum? Which one does chrysler recommend? Also, which gap do you guys prefer, 40, or 42? Thank you guys for your advice on the wires.

Use Mopar Copper Plus Champion Spark Plugs (Part #RE16MC for N/A & RE14MCC5 for turbo)
gapped to .040. It is my understanding that the platinum plugs will cause the turbo engines to "knock". [B)] [:0]

Platinum plugs are for the n/a PT and not the turbo. Gary is right about the Copper Plus plugs.

MY OPINION
These are jury-rigged to fit the Neon (or PT). The plug length isn't the same, and needs a special socket.
I'd rather go with parts designed for the engine.

I have the denso iridium plugs in my Pt you need a specila socket to get them in and out because they go in deeper and a reg socket will hit the side of the valve cover and not let you get the plugs tight. I dought if tommy had thees plug re machined after after buying them from NGK.

They don't "go in deeper" - it's a matter of where the "nut" part is on the plug. They're not designed for the PT, the Champions are. The plugs aren't ground down, the socket is.
