To get to the spark plugs you have to remove the Intercooler. You remove the plastic IC cover, unbold the IC from the block, loosen the two couplers going to the end tanks, and it should lift right off. Be careful where you grab on to because those fins bend easily. With the intercooler removed, unbolt the coil packs and pull them off the plugs.
What plugs are you planning on using?
Once you get around to pulling a plug, please let us know how they look (and include milage).Thanks for the info. I am planning on using copper plugs, maybe NGK. My car is hesitating a bit and I want to pull the plugs and look at them. I'll probably replace them whether they look bad or not.
Thats too logical, Whoosh. :slap:or you guys could read the super duper whoosh spark plug install how-to sticky at the top of the forum
its now a classic from Sept. 2007 lol
1. Install is so easy a caveman could do it.
2. You need a spark plug socket
3. You may want to pick up anti-sieze to coat the plugs
4. You should :search:[/b]
the weather or ambient temp has no relation to spark plug temp ratingI did use the :search:
How do you think I found this thread from a while ago? LOL
Sadly, I did not realize there was a sticky. I'm gonna go sit in the corner...
Oh... wait, someone please answer my weather question and one-step colder plugs.
Colder spark plugs remove heat quicker which reduces the chance of detonation. You will read and hear that you only need these colder ratings if you have performance mods...but the fact is your stock car is already a performance tweaked platform and responds well to the colder plugWhoosh -
Why would a stock to nearly stock car need to drop down one step colder?[/b]
