    Wifes car was runnin shitty this mornin. I knew it was time for plugs, rotor, cap, air filter. Now I always have my mechanic do the work on her stock 5.0. But I was home so I said wtf ill do it myself.

    WHO IN THERE RIGHT FUCKIN MIND WOULD PUT PLUGS IN THOSE PLACES? :rant: :rant: :rant:

    What a friggin PIA. The one closest to firewall on passenger side is almost impossible.

    I can change the plugs on my 4.6 in 10 mins. and never break a sweat.

    OK end of rant


    Roger wilco over and out

    ps Ill never do it again. :'(

    It's not that bad really, but the one that is blocked by the smog equipment does suck a little.

    I can change mine in about 15 mins if I need to. Of coarse I don't have smog, EGR and no strut tower brace, and oh yeah, I also have equal length headers.

    +1 to it being a PITA, I had to change the wires (installed my MSD 8.5 Pro Cores), took like 2 minutes to do all of them except that passenger rear, such a B!

    Then again, my brother had a 95 T/A, that was probably the worst car ever, I actually ended up popping the motor up 6 inches to get to it, last time I ever, EVER change plugs on an F-Body, I'd take it to the Stealership before I did that one again. The only time you should change plugs on those cars is when you're pulling the block out for other mods.....

    4.6 FTMFW, hell no, 5.0, there's a reason it is the most modded motor in probably all of history, it's the best!!!!
