    Waste of money. Just like most anything SLP sells.

    Make the same tool for a quarter of the cost.

    I made one for my Vette by using a 99 cent socket from my local parts store. I just used a "whizzer" wheel to cut roughly 3/4" off the socket (hex shaped) end, then drilled through the end that the ratchet would normally go into, making it large enough that the spark plug's porcelain would fit through it.

    Ironically, I needed the socket for my L98 powered, longtube headered Vette, but since I swapped on the longtubes onto my 2000 SS, I do not need any "special" tools whatsoever.
