    Spark Plug Fun !!!

    I've only helped my buddy do his 05 Sti, and when I say help I mean I handed him some stuff. Just not enough room for us both to get in there to get those babies out! Def a crappy job but hey like you said you learned how to do it and didn't get charged an arm and a leg.

    It kinda depends on the MY....some of them are 'easy' and can be done in 25-30 minutes.....the new ones on the other hand scuk. I spent 4 hours over three attempts to change them myself, though broke down and paid the stealership to do it. Come to find out that they unbolt the block from the car so they can tilt the engine enough to get to get them changed. Took them 1.5 hours.

    Not fun but feasible DIY in the earlier cars.

    I was surprised to hear at CretinFest that it was so much harder on the newer cars. That's a shame...I guess a compromise made by Subaru to accomplish some other goal.

    It's not like it was on my old cars with inline-4's, or even the V8's with room under the hood, but my 2002 isn't so bad.
