But how could you ever work on the engine after doing that? :o :o :o

Just take at least half the engine out to get at stuff
like you have to to change the plugs on a V6  ;D :D

How true is that last bit Dave :y
DG will be along ,saying you don't need to remove anything and can reach the plugs to change em from the driver's seat  :P
TBE is about 20mins to change the plugs, and that needs the bloody LPG injectors moved as well.

I'd be surprised if it takes Rob significantly longer to change all 8  ;D

Suspect not, as most of the time on TBE is with moving the LPG, and the physical amount of time to unscrew, unbox new, screw in new, torque new...

That's unusual, most of your jobs which "only" take *.* minutes, involve a stop for tea as well. ::) ::) ::)
