DIY spark plug change with ess kit?

I'm about to tackle this... anyone have insight?

I'm not sure if I have to remove the intercooler reservoir to get to the passenger side plugs.

Also would removing it create air bubbles in the intercooler?

Reservoir can be unbolted and moved aside, there's no need to drain coolant.

So you don't have to undo the coolant lines, just move it aside?

There seems to be a lot more involved when a supercharger is in the equation...

Thx Tom

No need, there's enough coolant line to just push it out of the way temporarily.

Glad to help.

Tom, im in the middle of replacement and I can't seem to get the drivers side coil cover off as it makes contact with the supercharger inlet in the rear.

I'm wondering if the supercharger has to come off to get that cover off?

Thanks
Alex

Supercharger doesn't need to be removed, but the inlet pipe should be popped off in order to make room.
