The video is what I did to prepare for and what I removed so that the engine could be removed.

If nothing else I had fun making this first part of the video

Because of band width there will be a few videos needed for this remove the engine project.

I how they are helpful to someone.

Hey Brad, which brand name plug wires did you decide on and how much were they? I plan on changing mine also. Great video by the way. Ben

A former OC member and local 928 nut here in Austin can build some nice wire sets for you. Blue/Red/Black colors available. I can't remember the price but I want to say $150... Look him up over on Pelican forum. Mark Robinson is his name.

Good luck.

Good work on the video Brad.

Ben I didn't go with conventional wires.
I bought a Tec-4 engine upgrade kit and it comes with 4 coils and new wires because I will not use the distributors anymore.

Pictures are in the car profiles area under brads 89 928

Sorry I have not posted anything else yet.
Have had a bit of other stuff to deal with but I will try to detail every step when I can get back to it.
I can not see getting to it this month so don't wait on me if you don't have to.

Good work on the video Brad.
Thanks for the heads-up on Mark as a source for plug wires. I've been considering a new set myself lately.

On that topic though, anyone ever tried NGK (Part #54232) wires on their 928?

I've used NGK wires on another vehicle for years and always had good luck/performance with them, but 928's being what they are, with their own quirks like any other vehicle, sometimes stuff works and sometimes it just doesn't.

And 2nd the good work on the video Brad.
