With antiseize on sparkplug threads, it's impossible to get an accurate torque reading.

Bosch recommends against it.

Kent,

Thank you, I DO stand corrected. Bosch claims the Nickel plating is sufficient for anti-seize properties. In reading thru their site, though, I couldn't find anything
recommending AGAINST it's use.

I guess old habits are hard to break!

Thanks for the post. I think the Mod should update the DIY link.

This is the first write up that I've seen shows removing MAF/MAS and air filter box as part of the steps to replace the plug.

Good job. Thanks.

I also learned how to replace/clean MAS/MAF now.

Why Take Off MAS?

Taking off the MAS and filter housing takes 2 minutes, and frees up LOTS-O-ROOM.

G-AMG thanks for great post. It is very helpful. Yesterday I replaced mine. You are right about taking off the MAS and filter housing. This is not big deal and really gives a lot of room.
I would like to add one more thing. Disconnecting ignition coils and taking them off giving more room and good access to all spark plugs.

One more perfect post! Thanks G-AMG! Now I definately need more tools...

I'd like to buy you some beer for the work done. It's a pitty that Minnesota is so far from Texas. Anyway, whenever you're going to be in north states - let me know, I'll buy you beer.

Thanks

Nick
