Hi guys, have had a read through posts but couldn't find no real answer. I have Hitech headers on my EL XR8 and have installed GT40P heads. Only spark plug I have trouble with is number 4 cyc with leads and need to loosen pipes to get to plug. Are there any headers out there that you don't have to loosen or remove headers just to change plugs, plus still use original leads with 45 deg boot. If not where do you guys get your leads made up. Mine on no4 needs protection as I've already melted 1 lead.
Thanks Steve

EL GT headers work. I had them as stock on my E7 heads and they have no dramas on the GT40P heads either. No leads are touching and I have the stock 45 degree lead leads.
As for aftermarket I'm not sure.

I got hitech's on mine with GT40P's and I'm running 45deg plug boots. Can change all plugs not with ease but easy enough for me and haven't got a problem with melting leads. Although i do have a set of billet lead seperators that i got from VPW which organise the leads nicely and stop them from sitting on the headers.

I have a set of hm's with aftermarket ice leads... came up a treat with the GT40P's.. I had some pacemakers previously that i got rid of. I should have had #1 & #4 modified instead of getting new headers, the pacies sounded better :(

By the sounds of things I'm glad I never fitted the GT40Ps to my engine. The plugs come in and out of the twisted wedge heads a piece of piss! :)

How much are those difillipo headers costing?
May have to look into that. But not if they cost an arm and a leg.

They come out of the GT40ps the same... just the lead boot that gets stuck on some types of headers.
