Default spark plug question...tried luck

ok guys. have a stupid question that i tried doing a search for so i wouldnt have to ask. no luck. are the factory plugs supposed to be gapped and if so how much? i removed mine at 28k and put anti-seize on them, then re-installed. car doesnt seem to have wot anymore. and there is a noticeable delay now when puttin foot on it in any gear before you feel car start really going. sorry to ask a question i know has been beat to death

pull the plugs back out and clean that anti-sieze off the electrode.

sounds like you either got some on there by accident...or you put too much onto the threads and it ran down onto the electrode.

thanks for the responses guys. will def pull them again soon. and clean off and make sure gap is .040-.050.
thanks nuke. sorry i aint been on much. detailing cars full time again. dont have a computer in front of me all day anymore like i did.
thanks again guys for the quick responses. might try and do it tonight before i leave the shop. also could be that my dyno tune i had was not that good. just got my tuner back from my uncle in memphis with 2 can tunes from dynospeed that feel a lot better than the dyno tune i had. and i aint even put the 93 tune on yet. think i might have gotten hustled with the dynotune idea. oh well. live and learn. nobody else will get my 2011 when i get it but joe at dynospeed.
