Default Rapid Fire PLug #5 Gap

I bought some AC Delco Rapid Fire #5 spark plugs for my 88 corvette. I would like to know if these plugs are already gapped or do I need to get a tool to gap them to .035. One more question I have is can I put the MSD 8.5 mm super conductor (P/N 31453) spark plug wires on my stock distributor since I will soon be adding headers. Thanks for any suggestions or experiences you have had on your corvettes.

I'd check the plugs for gap anyway....even if they say they are pre-gap...
yes you can use those plug wires now

Like Vinnies87 said, you ALWAYS check the gap. Plug wires should be fine.
