    Spark plug change

    A bit long but he does a good job with pointing out the few struggles you should expect to run into. Also a few pointers.

    He also posted a link to the swivel socket extension he used. This is the same one that Corey suggested last year.

    Thanks Corey. Got mine as soon as you mentioned it. Plug change happening this weekend. I’ll do my best at looking at the top of the piston on the front cylinders but I’m not gonna go out and buy camera.

    Note that he DID NOT use anti-seize on the thread or dielectric grease on the coil boots. Or at least he did not show using it.

    That is totally your call.

    Yep, that swivel tool is a must. It’s definitely a Must Have tool for Hemi plugs.

    Ha you're welcome

    Thats Boosted Motorsports video and he's in southern California where there is no salt in the winter and only a moderate temperature change in the winter. IMO antiseize on spark plugs is a must if you live in the rust belt. Just a very light dab on the bottom of the threads. I have to do my plugs in the fall and I put antiseize on at 29k so I'll post some pics when I do them.
