Default sparkplugs for VF stage 2 and how often to change?

hey, folks,

i am trying to recall what sparks are run with VF stage 2.
i just moved and i have not had a chance to sort through my records as well as saved boxes (yeah, i saved the sparkplug boxes ).

i believe they are NGK DCPR9E.

these have copper core with nickel alloy tip. the reach is 0.750 in iirc.

and for some reason, i am thinking they need to be regapped/respaced every 10-15k mi. is that right?

I think that will be best to call VF! But I think that the part # of those plugs are right at least from what I remember when I was down at VF!
