Spark Plugs

As recommended here and from Nissan, I'm getting ready to put new spark plugs into the Mada (I'm about to turn 100,000 miles). Planning on using NGK Iridiums. Does anyone know what the gap shoud be?

I put them on almost 9K ago and was told that they (NGK Iridium 9) were pre set from the factory.

Don't gap them. Iridiums are already preset and gapping them = damaging them.

Advanced Auto has the best price I've seen anywhere.

good to know, most warn about factory gap, and say you should check, but as usual I will go with the CA guru's advice.

I put Bosch Ir spark plugs on my Armada. They told me that this was a huge NO! Is this true!?

Ok.

This is what they told me, "Moonlight (my truck) will start running like ****. Then the SES light will come on as codes for multicylinder misfire start occurring. Then unburned fuel will start dumping into the catalytic converters resulting in a catastrophic event: explosion: fail safe mode: NOT GOOD!!!"

Can someone help me make sense of this?
