So after 67,000 miles on my 99GAGT, my #3 plug is misfiring. Decided to go ahead and buy the Boush Platinum 2 plugs and Boush 8mm wires. Question I have is what socket size do I need to take the plugs out AND what is the torch down rating of the plugs when I put the new ones in? Thanks!

go to autozone or something and get a sparkplug socket. has a nice little pad inside to protect the plug

Size 3/8 is the size
I sugest buying a rachet with the crank that you can twist at the end(Like a cork screw) rather than using the side to side rachet.
This will be used for the back three.
Trust me the will save you a lot of agravation Plus you can NOT use the side to side motion on the drivers side back plug.
i also sugest buying a long extention.
I just did it and it not as easy as you may think.
Goodluck

also just torque until snug. u don't really need to worry about torque specs for the plugs
