If it was a NA the gap is .040. Turbos, I'm not sure of.

just replaced my ngk iridiums with good old champion copper plus plugs... the gap on the iridums opened up to about .047 and one of the plugs was black and burnt looking. Anyway I gapped them to .040 and the car runs super smooth with no more studder at high boost in 4th & 5th gear. .040 seems to be a good consensus on this forum. Definitely upgrade your wires while you are doing the plugs. This is one of those places where a little but of $$$ goes a long way.
