That's what it is for my 02' so sounds right. You could always call AutoZone. Even they can't mess that up.

I used .054 on all of mine which I believe is what the factory uses too. Not 100% sure on that but I know I did use .054.

Usually platinum plugs are already pre gapped. I would still check the gap though. And it is .054
