dont do that unless you have rubber elbow length gloves or long pliers with plenty of insulation. those guys obviously have not been stung a coil pack.

If you unplug the LT connector on the coil you WONT get stung by the coil pack.

EDIT: Insulated pliers do work well, and yes, unplugging an injector will achieve the same thing
