just acquired a SS396 camaro with air. What is the secret to getting to the #8 plug to change it or even to check the plug boot? Not much room. Also the car has AIR injection rails, even less room.Need someone who does this to tell me how.. thanks.....thud

I have a similar set up with my 350 (air and AIR). I find it a lot easier to go from under neath the car to get to the last two plugs on the passenger side. Not sure if this would be the same for you or not.

In my 69 Chevelle with 396 and air, I had to climb under the car and reach up there. Harder to get at with headers in the way...
Good luck
