They are on www.PTDoItYourSelf.Net - you now have to pay to join - You have to take intake manifold off - I propped it up with a atick rather than disconnect linkages.
Get Anti-seize lubricant and dielectric grease. The anti-seize goes on the plug threads, the grease is for the plug wire boot to help keep it from sticking to engine block and plugs from sticking to the boot.
You should replace the wires, too - they go bad - I have Crane wires (RaceAndStreet.Com) - magnecore wires are good, too - stock wires have too short a life.

And Welcome to the forums.

Im living breath proof, I think, of a house hold mechanic that knows jack about putting in parts.

I did my plugs myself and have enjoyed doing so. If anyone remembers I have a scar still on my finger where the intake cought it.

I say find some help and a guide and take a crack at it, I mean go for it, yeah, don't crack anything.

Not much detail, but free: (Ignore the hype about denso plugs...)
