Welcome DiamondChromeMaxima,
Use the "Search Button" Enter key words "Change Spark Plugs"

I feel sure someone else will chime in very soon.

Welcome, not an easy task if you never done it before. Could be overwhelming but give it a shot I guess.

Heard it's somewhat a difficult job.

Everything is possible with a little beer and a lot of knowledge, or a little knowledge and a lot of beer. Whichever you choose is up to you.

It adds space to the runners in the intake manifold allowing more volume. It also helps cool down the manifold & engine which actually gives you more power.

You see a diff with it especially if you go speeding around, you can literally do 100mph.. park and open hood and place your hand on the intake manifold and wouldnt get burned at all.

Anyone whos been to the track knows how nissans hate heat. Cooler engine = faser times.

The spacers have been dynod to see 10hp and 15ft-lb of torque. Here is a link to NWPs site if you are interested.

Yeap & the power is gained due to the cooler engine. Spacers are def worth it.

I have created pdf version of the known spark plug change DIY and I have also posted that pdf on maxima.org site, that's were I used to hang around a lot but lately that site became lil disturbing.

http://forums.maxima.org/6th-generat...ement-diy.html

Anyway, few things I would strongly recommend during spark plug change. I am sure pros to work like this do not need.

1) As soon as manifold is off then cover-up engine head with something. If you drop something in there then god bless you.
2) Also get EGR gasket because you will find that the OEM will no longer be usable.
3) Do not miss out on anti-seized to save yourself a trouble next time.
4) If you find magnetic socket then that will be a god send because putting plugs back may drop hard and you may loose plug gap.

It's pretty easy job but little time consuming.
