NGK's are fine. BKR5E-11 is listed as OEM by the NGK electronic catalog

a 5/8 spark-plug socket will work

gap is 0.044 +_

use a little high temp anti-sieze (permatex 133K or something similar) to make the next tune-up easier. torque to about 18 - 20 ft-lb since you don't want to strip the threads in your aluminum heads

18mm spark plug socket, $3.99 at Sears

Spark Plug: Standard BKR5E-11 gapped at 0.039 - 0.043 in. (from Factory Service Manual)

A little anti-seize is a good idea
