Whiskerfish is on a distinguished road
Default I was counting on the emissions sticker

Hello

New to this board. 2010 5.7L I bought new plugs yesterday and went out to start changing them this morning thinking that the Gap would be on the Emission control placard. Alas it is not.

I went with standard autolite plugs and need the gap please!

Also I know these are aluminum heads so if anyone has the plug torque values I would greatly appreciate it.

TIA!

WF

Torque is 20 ft/lbs and gap is .45 I believe. I usually gap a little closer , like .35 because I spray nitrous. I'm surprised they use Autolite plugs, I run copper Champions and they last really well, got 80,000 miles on the ones in my RT Magnum wagon. NGK's have also worked well. Put a little Neversieze on the threads.

.045 is the gap, and the books lists 20ft-lb, but I've never torqued a set of plugs in my life on the hemi considering how much of a PITA the rear plugs are to deal with. The extensions and u-joints needed wouldn't give you an accurate torque anyways, so the 'snug' rule comes into play with these plugs. Ans yes, add anti-seize to them, it's a must.
