SVO: RE: Changing Plugs and removing intercooler

I use the Ford or NGK plugs.  There's lots of exotic plugs around, but I
stick with the cheap ones.  They work good and are easy to change

Yup, comes off very simply.  Two bolts at the front, two bolts at the
back, 10mm on mine.  Two "worm drive" clamps one at the throttle body,
second at the turbo outlet.  5 minutes tops !

I think I know what you mean,  if so Yes.  It's the bolt directly behind
the alternator, tucked below the rubber PVC hose.  Right where the
distributor shaft goes into the engine block.  It's a tricky one to get
at, 15mm I think.
