    I have these from courts they run a bit cooler for stage 3 cars , or you can still use standard as well, they will be fine nothing to worry about and 0.7mm is correct.
    stage 3

    They are fine, however they come with a pregap of 0.8mm which is correct for the car ( checked with NGK ..... ) all other measurements are the same as the std NGK plug ie reach, thread etc etc

    Courtenay MS are the only tuner who recommend a gap of 0.7mm mostly with their maps HOWEVER I strongly suggest you don't even try to alter to 0.7mm as you will find it extremely difficult and cause damage to the tips and ultimately to your engine when it fails off .............
