I did it myself. The front three took 10 minutes. The back three took another 20. Once I took off the back engine lift bracket, there just enough room to get the plugs in and out.

Excellent job.... doesn't it feel nice to know you didn't have to pay a mechanic for that?

My wallet says yes, but my left arm says no. Next time I do them, I'm going to do the back three from underneath. I left the stock Delphi wires on, with only has 47k miles on them. I'll change the wires to Magnacore at the next plug change as well. By the way, whats up the springs on the end of the stock aluminum boot protectors?
