2000 prelude how do I remove and reinstall spark plugs for nitrous

Hello,

I will be using a zex 75 shot wet kit instead of my 55 shot pretty soon. I want to know how to remove the spark plugs and what tools I will need. Also if there is anything special I need to know. I want to be able to check for detonation or to see if I'm running too rich.

Thankyou

take off the silver cover that says honda on it ( 4 10mm bolts )
remove spark plug wires
get a 5/8's spark plug socket and a 1/4" rachet with a 6 to 7 inch long extension ( the only way your going to reach the plugs )
twist them out like a bolt and if the spark plug socket you have is jank you the plug wires to remove the plugs after you unscrew them all the way ( just shove them back into the holes.
when you reinstall the plug DO NOT crank down on them unless you like having a head on your car that is not worth a $hit because you stripped the threads out of it.

btw you dont know how to a take out plugs and you have n2o on your car... that worries me J/K man

Yeah, I'm an electrition by trade, not much mechanical backround. I really just don't have the manual, and wanted to know which tools to buy so I wouldn't have to go back and forth. Don't worry, I have a pretty solid setup. I appreciate the help, most people probobly would not help a man out so thankyou.

Also, thread the plugs in by hand using the extension untill they are snug then gently torque the plugs with the ratchet. This helps avoid cross threading.

DO NOT REMOVE ALL OF THE SPARK PLUGS AT THE SAME TIME IF YOU DO NOT KNOW YOUR CARS FIRING ORDER!

YOu've got to do them one at a time if you don't know the firing order or your car won't start, lol! Theres an order in which the spark plugs go back on and if you get it right your car won't start...so you have to do them one at a time( take one out, change it, put it back in) etc etc

Is this true about the firing order? Am I safe if I just remove the wire, remove the plug, replace it, and move on to the next one? Please verify so I don't screw something up.

Thanks

Thanks guys, I appreciate it. While I've got some people replying, who knows anything about reinstalling the stock crank pulley. I'm removing the unorthodox crank pulley I installed a few years ago due to all the controversy with the, and can't remember if I removed anything else with it. I don't believe so, I think all I did was remove the stock pulley and install the unorthodox, so I'm thinking it will be just a direct swap out. Also my rightside window stopped working today. I don't hear the motor even trying to work, and the other side is fine, so I'm assuming its the motor. I had honda fix that window a couple years ago and I'm right back in the same spot. I will probably post another thread about it.

Thanks
