I got changing plugs down to 30mins thats including gapping all 6.
I found the best way is to remove the cross over pipe tps plug and the other plug above number 5.
i use a 1/4 ratchet with the spark plug socket uni joint then a 50mm extension.
The plugs I use are bkr6es-11 I found theyre the best for up to 10psi then I go down a heat range.

I have a question:

My car was working fine until I changed the oil and the plugs and now my car doesn't start. You can hear the starter motor go, but no joy. I put in BCPR6ES-11's so I know it's not the plugs. I'll try testing for a spark when I get home from work, but I have a sneaking suspicion it's the CAS. Anyone else know of any problems that might completely stop the car from starting that are associated with the plugs?
