disconnect the wire on the plug coil. remove the retaining nut with a 10mm wrench or socket.



remove plug coil.



use your plug puller and ratchet to remove the plug



change all 8 plugs. reinstall your coils, bolt them back down, install the wires. install your intake. bammm, your done.

if there are any questions let me know.

also, if this is your first time (virign mechanic) just take your time

i hand tighten my plugs. i do not use a torque wrench. i get mine hand snugged down. then i turn the wrench about 1/4 turn more. it seems to work good for me. i also add a bit of anti-seize on my spark plug threads. that way they do not become galled up in aluminum heads.
