Default Just a Spark Plug Change

Just changed my spark plugs and wires today thought id put up some pics:
heres the old stuff:
Original Wires (maybe not sure)
AC Delco Rapidfires (possibly)




and the new:
Taylor Spiro 8mm Pro Wires
AC Delco Spark Plugs



the install wasnt too bad some of the plugs took a lot of force to loosen heh but other than that it was good...ill prob clean my engine soon so everything will be nice and shiny heheh

Maybe its the flash but both the #1 and #6 plugs in the first pic look stained?
Pausible dirty fuel injector or my old eyes?

Chaning them really arent as hard as it looks. You just gotta feel around for them, get your socket and extension on there, make sure its a dedicated plug socket with the rubber catch inside, then get your wrench on and take em off, its well worth it, it will love you for it!

yea it wasnt really too bad i did my car and my dads ssei that day the hardest part i think was getting the boots off of the back ones they felt like they were really stuck to the plugs--i guess from the heat...but yea i just used a long socket, with an extension and the rubber catch and it was all good. the bonnes actually have quite a bit of room under the hood to work with compared to other cars. just remember when you put the new ones in to start them with your hand to prevent crossthreading and dont forget to gap the plugs either .060in i had to take out 2 that i put in bc i forgot to gap them but the gap was pretty close. but anyways im rambling again its not too hard and not too expensive either!
