    I don't know how you people with A/C do it...I have a hard time, and I have no A/C and small hands.

    Had to take the coil packs off on the passenger side and took the Air pipe off of the manifold. getting to the plugs wasnt so bad after that. just those damn plug wires were on there so good!

    Best thing to do before tugging on them is twist the boot to break it free from the plugs
    Had to do this job recently, go with msds. Well worth the money and you can bend the boots away from the header/manifold

    yeah just done mine, wasnt fun at all. i finally ended up taking all the coil packs off passenger side to get to the #6 and 8. i tried to get the number 8 from underneath but that wasnt happening, lol. i got my knees on the battery and leaned in the engine bay to get them. my arms and hands were all tore up. went ahead and replaced wires to, cause i didnt want to do that again for a while,lol.

    It's phuucked any way you look at it.
    Underneath for the rear two on the passenger side is a definite.
    I installed Denso Iridiums with MSD wires for two reasons.
    1. They work great.
    2. I do not want to change plugs / wires for a looooong time.
