I was looking at a co workers santa fe engine today and i was just browsing around. I noticed that the spark plugs are right under the intake manifold. Is this format used on the tnew tib? if so how the hell do we get the plugs out without removing the intake? HELP!!!!!!<img src=/images/forums/snitz/cry.gif width=16 height=16 border=0>

Your right there!

I havent changed my spark plugs yet, but you HAVE to pretty well get the dealership to do it unless you have experience.

<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>Get ready for heavy duty labour charges...the upper part of the intake manifold will have to be removed and the gasket for that section changed when your plugs are replaced.This means the throttle cable and whatever ancillaries that are attached will also have to be moved in order to make the job easier...

Hey Smiley I Havent gotten my new tib yet<img src=/images/forums/snitz/cry.gif width=16 height=16 border=0> it was supposed to be Monday but now they say its gonna be Friday. With the spark plug issues if I were to change the intake whenever someone releases the CAI for it. If there is a different intake on the motor will this make the changing of the plugs easier?

I have a good question for you guys?

Why are you going to even bother changing them out?

Hyundai already uses good plugs and just changing plugs and wires is not going to add any performance unless you already have alot of other mods.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/uhh.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

<img src=/images/forums/snitz/guns.gif width=33 height=16 border=0> NO2.
The Zex kit is tuned at a 75 boost you should have your timming set back like 4 Deg.
Better plugs (zex like others) run colder and you don't have to set your timming back.

hrm. when talking about no2, why use "better" and "no2" in the same sentance? do you have a large turbo your trying to spool? no your just cheap. if you want to do NAAAWWWZZZZ in your tib at least you'll have to almost know what your doing to install it and make it work.

granted it is pretty stupid to put the manafold right over the plugs, but being pissed because it keeps you from NAAAAWWWZZZINNNGGG is a pretty rediculous reason. in the future i see many many pissed off local mechanics who are doing just routine maintenance and have to remove the manafold. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/disapprove.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

nmap those mechanics won't be pissed off because they are just getting more labor hours out of the V6 owners. They also won't be pissed off because Mitsu v6s among others are already setup this PITA way.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/finger.gif width=33 height=15 border=0>

HMMM Lets see turbo. NOT ANY TIME SOON. No one around here touchs Tibs to put in a trubo. Add to that the 3 to 7 k price tag to get it to run right (no counting the distance to find some one to put it in). Don't have the cash yet. The Manifold. Is a Pain but doable. They just did some Dumb A** things to that car. Have you seen the air intake. No its a pain but you can work around it.
Besides who said I was pissed. I get pissed When a dumb a** dial up user calls me cause tech-support is gone and they figure that the Admin will help them. That Upsets me. Not this

It depends on if you're hourly or booked. If they rate the tib as a .5 hour job and you're booked then you would want it to take less. If you were hourly, drag that sh!t out!

WELL i dont really have a problem with removing the manifold. At my previous job i was a mechanic and im fairly confident in my ability to remove the manifold myself...i was only asking in case there was an easier way than what i saw int he 45 seconds i took to look over his engine...besides i may go with a small shot of nos....so who knows. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Your still gonna need the intake manifold. The CAI only replaces the piping between the 'black box you see' (air box) to where the plastic crap stops and the metal begins.

<BLOCKQUOTE id=quote>quote:<hr height=1 noshade id=quote>Why are you going to even bother changing them out?<hr height=1 noshade id=quote></BLOCKQUOTE id=quote>

You have to remember, spark plugs don't last forever. You have to clean them, and after 90,000kms it is recommended to replace them. Even though there is no immediate reason to change them in probally 2-3 years down the road you have to replace them.

Might I recommend saving $0.50 every pay cheque between the day you buy the car and when you need to replace them. This should quit your whining about the extra cost it will take to replace your plugs.

Also, don't complain. At least you don't own a GM mini van lets say a Safari!!!! You gotta drop the whole engine out, or tear apart about 90% of the stuff just to SEE THE ENGINE!!!
