I'll prolly do the first method, but here's another.
So, why don't they make the plugs this way to begin with? I can see that it would cost more to produce and harder to gap, but any ideas?

I think they wear at sooner,

I think they wear at sooner, and most people don't want to replace them as often for a few more mpg, not sure though. (just a guess)

Gonna buy some plugs, NGK

Gonna buy some plugs, NGK V-power, in the next few days, and give some pictures and explanation in the form of write up for swapping them around. Too bad I don't have a dyno to test this stuff on, but we shall see about results. Damn fouled cat, :-(

I set my plugs to .30 insted

I set my plugs to .30 insted of .40. I think it helped a bit. I still need to test a few tanks to find out.

I heard that gapping plugs

I heard that gapping plugs .010 less than stock will give a hotter spark. It takes less voltage to jump a smaller gap and it leaves more energy to do it's intended job; burning fuel.
