That Camaro is clean as hell! I like the side exhaust too. Tyler, I could reach the spark plugs in the front but wouldn't have space to pull them without slicing my arms open and whacking my knuckles on the radiator.

You must have the biggest arms in the world, and you belong in the Guinness Book of Records.
EXACTLY what im trying to say lol, i could probably fit my whole upper body inbetween the front manifold and the radiator fans if i had to. now that i think of it, doesnt the stock manifold stick out further than the tip of the spark plug anyway? wouldnt your front manifold be damn close to the fans if what youre saying were true?

never done a camaro or cuda, but i assume they must be pretty easy. i was comparing it to newer vehicles that have an ass load of wiring and no space. for instance: my dads 06 silverado with the 5.3, youd think youd have a bunch of room with it being a truck and the engine is in-line. think again, a few of those plugs pissed me off big time.

Lets face it, we're talking about changing spark plugs here. Every vehicles has its quirks but spark plugs are a simple task no matter how you slice it. Even if your changing all 16 in the 5.7 Hemi (yes there is 16 for that 8cyl engine) ,still its never rocket science. Even on the newer vehicles with grotesque engine shrouds that cover the entire top of the motor barely allowing you to add oil, can usually be easily attacked from underneath. Pull out the creeper and have atter. happy

There's still nothing quite as easy as changing spark plugs when they're all on top of the engine, with all the elbow room you could ever want.
