I have no idea how critical this is...but just FYI

I have chosen to replace each time I remove. But I am kind of fanatical like that lol
I really appreciate this level of detail.

Are the bolts #19 in the diagram below (qty 4)? I'm really curious for those that have had the spark plug change done at dealership, whether they listed these as part of the bill of materials let alone actually had them replaced per factory manual.

The picture you posted is not clear to me.

It would mean parts 9,10 and 17

TECHNICALLY, anytime the carbon fiber brace is removed, the bolts are supposed to be replaced also.

Probably overkill. Just throwing it out there. One solution might be FCP Euro and their lifetime replacement.

Thank you for the write-up. Just did this job today.

Couple of notes: I used an E10, E12, and E14 sockets, didn't need an E11. The large bolts holding the aluminum brace are 16mm, and the bolts holding the carbon fiber brace were mostly 13mm, with a couple of 10mm thrown in.

I used OEM plugs, gapped to 0.020", and torqued to 18 ft. lbs.

Takes about 2 hours if you're moving quickly. Twice that if you're not.

Super helpful write-up, thanks! Took a quick pic of every bolt removed and tool used, thought it might be helpful to see.

Just curious...I see you gapped to 0.020. Are you stock or tuned?
I'm stock, did mine a week ago gapped to 0.028.
Thx

Has anyone completed there spark plug change and had some oil on the threads? Is it normal or is that the valve cover gasket going?

I should say, Iím not going through oil, no smoke, no misfires, no oil burning smell either.
