stock spec for the vortec or stock spec for the original l69? because i think the gap for the vortec is .06", and the l69 is around .04"?

Split the difference? lol... in reality, it won't make any noticeable difference if you go .040, .050, or .060.... though a smaller gap will improve life expectancy of various ignition components.
