    Number 8 plug-0, Me - 1

    Just finished changing my plugs. My arms look like I got into a fight with a wolverine.

    Got them done though.

    It's actually not as bad as they say. Driver's side was cake, and the only thing I had to move on the pass. side was the AIR tube off the exhaust manifold, and push it up out of the way. I started to unbolt the coil rail, but couldn't get to the last bolt, so I left it in place.

    I got 2,4,6 from the top, by kneeling on the battery and balancing myself with one hand on the intake.

    Number 8 was actually pretty easy, I had a harder time with #6. For 8, I went from the bottom, I'm running stock manifolds and cats, so I had just enough room to get my arm up there. One of the few times I've been thankful for my girl-ish hands and forarms, lol. Hardest part was getting the plug wire off.

    Anyway, I'm glad THAT'S over. I've been putting it off for a long time. I got a little intimidated by it, but people make it seem worse than it actually is.

    Ok, enough patting myself on the back.

    Get Long tubes and it's much easier. Still get at #8 through the bottom but I can do the whole job out/in in 20 minutes.

    Every one thinks I pulled the AC / Heat box out for weight. They're all wrong... It was for #8 !!! That's the easy one now !!! LOL !!!
