Default Intake,T-Stat,New hoses and coolant done,Spark Plugs? Wires?

Ever since I found this forum I did my intakem, Changed my radiator hoses,Coolant and T-stat

Now I wanna go for wires and plungs.

Is this another thing I can do on my own?

Intake was simpe and took 15 minutes.

Coolant,hoses and T-Stat took the whole damn day but was easy enough.

Might I run into problems changing the plugs and wires?

DO stores Gap your plugs for you? I've never dont that before

Any tips before I tackle this?

Plugs and wires are EASY. They are all very simple to get to. The hardest one for me was actually the one that appeared to be the easiest. Number one cylinder I had a hard time getting to because I couldn't go without the extention because of the ange, but couldn't use my 3 inch extention because of the fan housing.

Its easy, do it yourself definately.

If you get the right plugs, they should be gapped already, but it is always best to check them before you put them in your car. All you need is a gapper, and just make sure the 060 slids in and out with barely any resistance. All of mine were gapped properly though.

If you can do an intake manifold, you can certainly do plugs and wires. They usually come pregapped but you should check them anyway.

If you can do an intake manifold in :15 minutes, you are my hero.
