    1-2 hours is right, but what is the deal with the spark plugs in such an inconvenient spot? If Subaru had moved them up like 1/2 inch on 04/05s it would be much easier to get at. I'm fully capable of changing plugs in other cars but I don't think I ever want to change Subaru plugs again, what a pain in the a$$.

    You could always pop the 2 14mm's off the motor mounts and jack the engine up a tad...Personally I would much rather replace plugs on the H6 rather than any current boosted boxer...

    I've done them numerous times on numerous WRX's and STi's, and can do it in about 15 minutes. Do it enough, and you'll find the fastest way to do anything.

    Thankfully for the 2010 EZ36's the plugs dont look bad at all.. it looks as though they have given you considerablely more room between the valve covers and "frame rails"....
