    Its not that hard with a lot of patience and time and a good socket/swivel. Granatelli wires seem to be the best on one of the stickies

    the wires is no prob at all, get a plug socket and a 2 inch extension, then when getting to the #7 cyl, the last one on the pass side, if you can jack up the car on that side and get it from underneath if not remove the air fittings and you should get it,

    as for plugs i like like the tr551x. and the granatelli wires, a bit pricey but imo worth it, also dont forget the fuel filter, that should do it, besides a tranny flush and filter change, you should be good

    Fuel filter is a big one, people tend to neglect it and its a cheap and easy swap.

    Removing the coil brackets will give you more room to change the plugs and wires.

    Wouldn't hurt to change your gear oil either.

    MSD 8.5 Super's are solid wires. Definitely lift the front end, some of the plugs/wires are much easier to get to from underneath.

    I think everything is about covered. Maybe check your serpentine belts, I just did mine, pretty simple to do both of those, good piece of mind. I am also planning on doing my radiator and coolant hoses, who knows about those.... You don't want any of those breaking.

    Replace the hose and get a coolant flush. Coolant breaks down around 50k and should be changed. Also dont forget about power steering fluid, brake fluid, and clutch fluid(if you have it) All systems can be flushed and cleaned.

    to get the last plug on right bank if you can lift the car and remove the down pipe," cat convert"it will be very easy to change that plug (I have a lift so it was very easy for me ). Also remove the air pump fitting and hose that bolts to front of the rt ex. manifold and the 2 front coils ( no need to remove brackets) this gives you enough room to get to rt bank plugs. I dont use any "shortened" plug socket just a standard plug socket, swivel head ratchet and ext.
