    A new spark plug has been released for use in the above vehicles. The new spark plug has an Iridium tip instead of the current Platinum tip. Due to the different tip design, the gap of the spark plug has also changed. The new spark plug, P/N 12571164 with AC Delco P/N 41-985, is gapped to 1.01mm (0.040 inches) when the spark plug is made. The spark plug gap is set during manufacturing and should not be changed or damage to the spark plug may result. Any new spark plug found to not be properly gapped should not be used.

    Document ID# 1396703

    So if you're not running the iridium tip plug noted, you should be fine with stock gap.
    That sucks...I bought those plugs that came gapped at .040. I changed them to 0.55. They still seem to run fine so far! And for the record, 45 minutes is just about right, it would take less time if I didnt have to keep replacing the bottles of budlight! Usually one bottle per plug, by the time I get to #8, I am so buzzed I dont feel the coil pack digging into my forearm.
