Should I go back for Iridiums or will the "normal" plug work as well?

On my toyota echo, which also came with iridium plugs from the factory, I used ordinary platinum plugs when I changed them. It worked fine after I trusted my judgement for for the plug gap instead of using the gap specified in the owners manual, which turned out to be for the iridiums, I guess. It ran like crap with the plats using the iridium gap. I pulled them out and regapped and it was like gaining 20 hp.
And not that it helps you any, I had to go to about 4 places to get the correct fuel filter for a 2000 Hyundai Accent.
