After just doing mine I would remove the manifold if there is a next time. The time it takes to do that is worth what you make up fussing with the 4 nuts on the coil.

Just remove the manifold, leave the cables alone. This job is a snap.

If it's the msd coil it works as a weight reduction, his wallet is alot lighter now! The MSD coil is a red stock one. You actually have to add on an ignition box to get any gains.
