    Wtf

    So i heard on the forum that it generally takes a first timer 5-6 hours to do plugs on a 2000 Trans Am and i dont know how it took me 2 hours. With just a swivel ratchet. Can someone explain to me how it takes people so long?

    I did mine while I was installing my headers but even so I couldn't see it taking 5-6 hours. I guess people just work at different paces.

    When I did mine it took me about 2 1/2 hours or so. #8 is much easier from under the car. I thought breaking them loose was the hardest part (odd angles with no room on a swivle) But once they were broken loose no problems. I just approached the job knowing it would be a pain and so I had no crushed expectations when it took a little time and effort. My recomendation is to have a wide variety of extentions and ratchet sizes to find the combination that works best for you.

    I guess it depends if you have small hands too ... I always ask my best friend to help out with # 8 since he is built like a girl!
