Default Spark PLugs

I read Skylines Spark plug guide. Thanks Skyline.
I performed a recon to track what I will do, so I won't do any thing wrong.
One thing I found on my 2008 PT, the mounting bracket of the throttle body seems to be different than the on in the spark plug guide. The mounting bolt seems to be on the rear of the trottle body unit.

Has anyone found the same issue?

Just trying to map thing out before I tear it all apart.

Thanks in advance.

Van

What guide exactly?

I vaguely recall the spark plug/wire replacement from my PT GT, and it was very straight forward and easy.

I will say though, be careful and don't over tighten the bolts to your intake manifold. Since it's plastic, it's possible to spin the threaded insert from the plastic. I put on JB Weld for added security in the future if things needed to be taken apart again.

I remember taking off that intake manifold 3-4 different times for different things.

I like to use my phone and take pictures so I can remember exactly were things go back before a tear down. Also great to have pictures of things I'm needing, kind of a shopping list.
