    TIP, for easy coil pack removal/install passenger side!

    To save your knuckles on future engine work:
    when you remove the passenger side coil pack, you will discover that the rear stud is a bitch to get to and remove. So once the stud and coil pack is removed, trim the rear mounting hole on the coil pack into a "U" shape.

    This way you can fasten the stud back into the valve cover and slide the coil pack mounting hole into the stud. Now for furture removal you will only have back the stud off alittle bit or tighten it a little bit.

    This is the where I cut my hands up and it really slowed down the process trying to lossen that stud!!!
