S197 Mustang GT spark plug replacement

Hey this is for the guys and gals who own a 05-07 GT in or around the Calgary, Alberta, Canada area. I am offering my help to change your spark plugs on your cars. I know getting them done by a shop is not cheap, and if they break it's even more. I have the proper tools to fix this problem. I bought it for my car but I only needed to use it once. So this is why I am offering to help other people out.

If you guys or gals are interested please call me or e-mail me
My name is Tony and my number is 403-561-1410 or e-mail [email protected]

I hope this may help some of you..

how much did the tools cost? Trying to decide if I want to attempt it or get a shop to do it. I remember when changing plugs was a no brainer and didn't cost a fortune to do or have done. I guess next they will come up with some special tool that no one has to do an oil change.

Forged bottom end, Ported heads, Saleen super charger, 2.8 blower pulley/15psi, Dual stage water to air intercooler, AFCO heat exchanger, battery relocated, Twin GT500 fuel pumps, T-56 trans, Aluminum flywheel, Aluminum driveshaft, 3.73 rear gears, Eaton TruTrac Diff, TA Performance rear end girdle, Racecraft suspension system, UCA, LCA, panhard bar, 15" slotted front rotors w/ 6 piston calipers, Carbon Fiber front splitter/rear diffuser, and bunch of other stuff
RWHP/RWTQ is adequate

I have the Lisle extractor tool, fellow Virginian, let me know if you need to use it.

Cool, thanks. I think I will give it a shot. Exactly where do the plugs break at. I've never actually seen 2 piece plugs. Are the Autolight HTs 2 piece?

IF they break, it's the lowere sleeve that separates and stays stuck in the threaded opening.

Yes the Autolites are two piece also but wipe a little bit of "Anti-sieze" on those lower barrels and it helps prevent cacbon build up. I installed HT-1's in my car. Mine came out without a problem but, I have loaned the tool out a couple of times.

Hopefully it will all go OK for you...
