Has anyone found a solution to make it easier to change plugs on a A-460 motor in a fox body? I am ready to drop my BBF in a GM car if I can't figure something out.:mad: I can't do a tube chassis or a mustang 2 conversion. S/S Rules.

This is a huge time saver. My car is not cut, but I'm gonna do it for qwk changes at the track. Right now I can change them in about 20 minutes...but we built the headers.

Exactly.........Just blast some holes in there a little bit bigger than the socket, if you are worried about the structure, just weld some big washers around the holes....
