whats the trick to removing the fuel filter? there is a strange "quick connect" that i didnt figure out. only poked a few mins though. I changed the front O2 sensor and changed the wires and plugs. BTW, for those of you still running a stock motor, what plugs did yall go with? I went with a NGK Iridium. Number 7164. The car seems to be running smoother. It had bosch ( havent heard good things about them) platinum plugs which didnt look terrible, but didnt look good either. The old o2 sensor was MELTED somehow.. as in the connector got too close to the manifold and melted. Im hopeing that the connector on the harness is ok.. :(

Stock ac-delco for me or rapid fires. Bosch Platinums are ok the +2 and +4 are the wonkey ones. If your plugs are bad even .99 plugs will make it run better.

Get some Q/D wrenches from AutoZone or where ever. NGK's Iridium's or AC Delco's are the better ones to get because they don't cause too many issues.
