Default Wires&plugs

I am waiting for my stage 1 PCM to get back from Flight Systems. I have already ordered a composite intake from Mopar Wholesale and I am planning on getting new spark plug wires and plugs too. I am considering the MSD wires with NGK Iridium plugs from Modern Performance. My forum searches tell me that the MSD wires are a decent choice and I like that they are red to match the body colour. The plugs also seem to be a good choice but I am wondering which heat range I should go with. These are the choices:

•Stock heat range (LZTR5AIX-13)- Stock heat range is for cars that are BONE stock with no increase in boost.
•1 Step Colder (LZTR6AIX-13)- Colder range, is for 90% of SRT-4 drivers out there, who have increased the boost with a good number of bolt on mods.
•2 Steps Colder (LZTR7AIX-13)- For big turbo, big turbo engines only, in the 450+hp range. Obviously not an option!

I know it has been asked before but I also wanted to confirm what the gap on these plugs should be (previous answers suggest .35 to .40).

Stock range is good. That's what we all use.

Got a buddy who runs his big turbo high hp GT with the stock copper plus plugs gapped at .030. 12 sec car and he swears by them. I use them in my stage 1 GT gapped at .035 and my GT runs excellent. For around $6 you can't beat them. Just saying you can't beat the price or the performance.
