If you are using uberdata, set your static timing back to stock. Let the program do it's job. And, yes, it is a good idea to run colder plugs regardless of what tuning method you use. You are introducing higher combustion chamber temps.

I am using the stock plugs at the stock gap setting in my car. I just pulled them after about 500 miles and they are blacker than sanford and son, so I am running a little rich. They seem to be working fine though, but I might try 1 step colder plugs anyways for ***** and giggles.

Just use the regular NGK v-power plugs that are 2-3 bucks. Then pick what heat range and gap you want.
