I am thinking of changing my plugs in the near future with the NGK iridium plugs and wanted to find out if there is anything out of the ordinary I need to know beforehand.
Outside of taking off the Plastic Engine cover, is there anything else that needs to be removed to access the plugs?
I understand this engine does not utilize traditional type spark plug wires, I haven't done this type before, I have replaced plugs in the past on other cars but haven't seen this type of setup before. to remove the covers on the plugs is it as simple as just unscrewing the screws? Does anything other than the plugs themselves need to be replaced?
If anyone has a turorial on changing the plugs on a 2001-2006 LS430 please post the link.
Thanks for your help!

Yup. It's pretty straight forward. Remove the engine cover and then unbolt the 2 bolts holding each coil pack to the engine. You can pull (wiggle) the coil pack out and the spark plug will be exposed. Nothing too hard.
is it the same procedure to change GS430 plugs? 2006
Yep. Just a hint for you. Remove the 2 screws that hold each coil packs on. Twist back and forth while pulling on the coil packs. The rubber boots have a tendency to stick to the plugs a little. Use a dab of di-electric grease inside each boot when you put them back on, to make sure its easy to get them off next time.
