Default spark plug wire change on 06 turbo limited

I saw the sticky on plug change for 06 but I have a turbo. How much more difficult is it to change plugs and wires? Also any ideas on what plugs and wires are good and what should the gap be on the turbo engine? Thanks, Jay

Stock plugs are good, gap about .035. On a Turbo I understand all you have to do is remove the plugs, the intake does NOT have to be removed. Any plug wires except stock, NAPA have been used by many on here.

True, the intake doesn't have to come off, but the plastic intake is tighter than the aluminum one - you'll need a shorter plug socket with a swivel on the end - and I put another swivel before the wrench and was able to do it.

Even if it does, it isn't a big deal. Just use a bungee to hold it up and it is out of the way. The gaskets can be reused as they are "O" rings that sit in a groove. I have changed plugs in all 3 of our NA PT's with no problem. Be sure to use dialectic grease in the boots and anti-seize on the threads. Your have to torque the plugs, (I don't have the specs at hand), but someone will chime in.

Guys, just my two cents, I just replaced the plugs on my 08 Turbo, in order to do so I had to loosen up the intake plenum to get to the two inner plugs, there is no way that it can be done with out doing so.
