gap spark plug

Post by Arsouille » Fri Feb 14, 2020 11:18 am

I just ordered the news spark plug(NGK SILZKBR8D8S for N20B20) but I can't find the gap?
Someone know him ?
Apparently I need special key to change the spark plug.
It's true?

Most all plugs today are pre-gaped. I checked mine before installing and they were all spot on.
FCP Euro says the plugs are pre gapped
Google says
