Re: (vwtuning)

get some new single prong OEM bosch and put them in, instead of the dual prongs you just put in.
I don't know what the problem is, but i'm willing to bet that your car is runny badly, no?

you DO NOT need to remove the intake manifold to change plugs on a 2.o, just get a long arse extension for your rachet. Plus my 2.o runs better with the basic bosch plugs, it did some wierd stuff when I had the platinums and I ended going back to new stock ones. Make sure everything is gapped right.
I found this page to be quite helpful:

Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

Its only 5 bolts to remove the upper part of the intake manifold. So if you do that its way easier....... escpecially if you have big hands.


its pointless the hardest part about doing the plugs is the boots, its hard to get them off without the tool for the job. The plugs are easy to get out with a normal extention. Changing plugs is not hard even with big hands, unless your a five year old your not getting your hands between the lower intake manifold between the runners to pull the boots off the plugs or even to lossen the plugs with a wrench that way......

Re: (OnelowcabriO)

I wonder did you change the Intake Manifold Gasket after removing it? Cause it wont suck air in Correctly and sometimes if the Gasket is pretty old it wont even let you Crank it over because of the huge loss of air.
