Whos running the NGK 5992 plug?

Just curious how people are liking the NGK plug that is 1 step colder than stock plugs.
do they notice better performance? Less knock? Better mpg possibly? Even though its good enough

I liked being able to gap them down for E85 on the dyno, but with 91 octane on the street I seem to have about the same amount of cold misfires that I had with the factory plugs until the motor warms up. No significant difference.
