    Default 1.8vvti spark plug gap

    As above does anybody know what the correct gap is for the spark plugs on this engine?

    Regards,
    Scotty.

    If they're multi electrode plugs, then you shouldn't attempt to regap them. They should already be preset.

    A spark will travel across the shortest distance. If one electrode is closer than another then it can prematurely burn out.

    Further info - according to Autodata, 0.9 to 1.1 mm, but the Bosch part number given (FGR8KQE) is a multi electrode sparkplug. So please note my earlier suggestion that they're preset and you shouldn't attempt to regap them.
