    Plug Wire Removal

    I'm considering upgrading the factory plug wires on my 02 SS and the passenger side rear wire is basically unaccessable from above. What is the best way to remove that wire? I'm considering the Granatelli wires since they have almost no resistance, anybody used them?

    go from underneath, pull the car onto ramps or put the front on jack stands, u should be able to get at it from underneath

    I always get it off from the top. Do you have headers? Makes it easier.

    If you really can't get to it unbolt the #8 coil pack and move it out of the way (2 10mm screws). It takes like a minute and makes it much easier to get to the wire.

    You should definitely be able to get it from the top of the motor, just squeeze your hand back in there.

    I have Granatelli wires on my car, and I've been very happy with them. They are very nice quality. I believe I got them for $100 from Summit Racing.

    99+ have a bracket that holds all the coils together. same idea though, I unbolt the whole coil bracket and pull it all out
