I use NGK 2238 plugs with a gap of .030". Running 24 psi boost with methanol injection. I change the plugs every 10K to 12K miles. I will notice a little bit of a WOT / high boost miss in the 10K to 12K mile range, which is my clue to change the plugs.

I also run the NGK 2238's @.030, I change them in the spring when the car comes back out for the summer season. I put maybe 5,000 miles a summer on it. I know I can go further between changes, but it's part of my annual spring prep. oil/filter change, plugs, clean cap and rotor, check belts and hoses.
