    Does anyone have any idea where to find it? I need to change them ASAP and can't find anything online, I think the intercooler lines have to come out but any help is greatly appreciated

    Looks like two per cylinder located just below the coil packs. May I ask why you need to replace ASAP?

    seems pretty basic. Remove the coil packs and then the spark plugs. If theres something in the way of the coil packs remove that or find a way to move enough to get the clearance you need.

    Although this seems pretty easy at first glance it's not, there will be a few plugs hard to reach and you will need to move things to reach them, if you have the proper tools this can be done in an hour or less. So what's the emergency, plugs are good for 100 K unless you are modding.

    no mention of any special procedure for the hellcat. just remove coils, remove plugs. guess they figure it's pretty easy access.

    Just the passenger side alone looks like a royal PITA either way let's see

    Bump.

    Gonna be changing my plugs probably this coming weekend.

    I'm getting a little worried, saw another thread saying a motor mount bolt had to come out?

    Anybody have a link to a procedure, or should I just send my wife to the dealer to distract the manager while I sneak $10 to a tech for a printout?

    I just did something similar when I replaced my valve seals last week... The driver side you will be able to just pull the coil packs and change the plugs....

    the passenger side is very tight, and you will play hell trying to pull the coil packs and plugs...

    If you loosen the engine mount on the passenger side, and raise that side of the engine a few inches, it will make a world of difference...
