Stick with oem, they will provide the best performance on a nearly stock or stock engine. Many of the advertised plugs you see actually hurt performance or make no difference. If you happened to have a lot of mods you can sometimes benefit from a colder heat range or gap changes.

Yes. There is no miracle plug that will give you a HP boost.

I agree with minimal intake/exhaust/tuning mods stick with oem. Usually you go to colder heat range plugs with forced induction, nitrous, etc. Sometimes ignition upgrades can benefit from wider gaps(although oem ignitions are pretty good anymore).

For more power look into airram.com. 2008+ intake manifold is a big upgrade(costly though IIRC). Headers area good option. And of course cams and head work.
