    just did mine this weekend and all i got to say is that whatever engineer decided to make the 8th plug that fucking hard to get to should be SHOT. but now that i know how to do it should take half the time. Removing the coil packs did help! read the above link helped out a lot.

    I did my plugs and wires on saturday, took about an hour. Driverside is easy. First three on pass side you can get from the top. then jack up the car and get the last plug on the pass side. My trick is....... I slide a spark plug socket over the plug, then use a rachet wrench, i think it was a 3/4 to back the plug out. Works like a charm, just dont drop the wrench, starter is right there.

    +1....I do exactly the same! Get Iridium plugs, they are more expensive but they last longer!

    If you ever put your car on the dyno, you probably wont use taylors anymore. We had a set on a car and we had all kinds of electrical interference from them.
