Spark Plug Gap

I did some searching, and also posted here (http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=796536) but came up with nada...

Does anyone know the correct gap for the spark plugs? I know they are supposed to be pre-gapped, but I a believe in "trust but verify".

They are supposed to be pre-gapped, but checking the gap on these twin electrode plugs can be tricky as it's measured differently.

I did see that post, but thanks for responding.

I ended up using my wire gap tool to just verify all the gaps were between 34-41 mils (I only had a 0.034 and 0.041 options) on both the new and old. Two electrodes on two of the new plugs were bigger than 41 mils, so a few quick taps on it and they closed to within gap that the rest of them had.
