Took 1.5 hours. all that I needed for the coils were an X large screwdriver to carefully fulcrum out. and the coat hanger loop for a few of them. Just twist the coils first to loosen seal and get them out.

I also recommend a magnetic spark plug tool( found on this forum). Besides that, just need a few different size extensions and some common sense.

Stealership wanted $550, I did it for the cost of plugs( $80).

My plugs were pretty worn and arched ( 45k mile since last change) , the change really helped the idle ad throttle response.
