    Ngk tr55

    Of course most people seem to recommend NGK TR55. Searching for them online this morning.Autozone, Advanced Auto, I dont see an exact match. Then I just searched NGk's site. It let me pick my car - 02 Trans Am - and it listed the following - Any easy way to explain how to get the plug everyone is talking about.
    Thanks
    Kelly

    Come to think of it, I believe I ordered mine from KY Speed when I bought my headers.

    Thanks. Ordered from ky yesterday along with the wires. Now even though i have read all of the tips on changing plugs i might just let a trusted mechanic do it. Thanks all.

    It's not that bad -- pop the plastic pins up that retain the cowl seal, remove the coil packs to give yourself some space and have at it. Get No. 8 from below and be sure to double click the wires onto the coil packs when you reinstall them.

    Be careful with #8. you may want to use a wrench on a socker from above or an extension and universal from below. remember to use dielectric grease for a better connection and waterproofing.

    On #8, when you say below do you mean directly under the car or through the wheel well ? I will be changing mine soon (1st time)

    You can change it from the top if you have long tubes. Just point the ratchet towards the rear of the car when loosening and tightening. Its really not that bad once you do it 2-3 times. Make sure you take the coil pack off though it will make it 100% easier to do.

    I found No. 8 to be easiest from underneath the car - there is no way to get at it through the wheel well that I could see. A very short 1-1/2" extension for your 3/8" drive ratchet also seems to come in handy for a lot of the plugs.

    Should the car be lifted from sides so it hangs or use a set of ramps ?

    Does not really matter -- just so it is done in a safe manner. You won't want to have it too high in the air as you need to be able to reach up to the plug.
