Default Plug gap

Hello all I'm hoping one of you will be able to tell me what gap to set my plugs to
Standard bug Wrx
Platinum pfr6b plugs
Gapping plugs is new to me so can you tell me the best method to achieve accurate gaps and tools required
Many thanks in advance
Paul

.7 feeler gauges and to close them I tap on shock studs gently
12mm ratchet to take cos out and spark plug socket short extension and racket to re move

With IRIDIUM spark plugs, should the GAP be reduced to 0.7mm as well?

Which plugs did you buy? The NGK PFR6B / 7B are gapped at 0.7mm out of the box...

Sorry my bad, the BKR7EIX-11 model (that is GAP 1.1mm) THE BKR7EIX model is GAP 0.8 mm now, I don't know if the adjustment from 0.8 to 0.7 is really necessary? Will it make a difference?

the 1.1mm plugs are generally for Naturally Aspirated models

the std 0.8mm gap should be fine unless extreme tuning
