i cannot tell you why but its a KNOWN FACT that you must replace with exact plugs.

SRT8 excluded from these findings.
That makes sense now on the service interval...but WHY!? It's almost like putting a carburetor on it. Anyway...how hard are the plugs to get to on the 5.7L? Is it like my Trans Am where they make a special tool and shop-labor is billed 6-8 hours to perform the task, or is this like my mustang 5.0 was where I can do it in less time than it takes for the headers to cool off?

There's 16 of them. Takes about 3 hours if your alright with a wrench. Have an assortment of extensions and adapters.

I just had the dealership do it. 16 less chances for me to break one off in then engine, and I believe this is the first time in 70K miles they had been done.
