Just changed spark plugs on 05 goat and saw something about headers.....

I just changed spark plugs on my 05 goat and first of all it was harder removing the plugs than changing the spark plugs itself. It was ok for me to reuse the wires right? They all came out ok and snapped right in?

Anyways so the passanger side headers when I was removing the last spark plug closest to the firewall (towards back of engine) I notice thae very last header head bolt was off, so the stud is still intact with no Nut head. Thats why last week when I was sweeping my garage I saw the cut off bolt head nut part on the ground under where my goat is parked. Now I know where it came from.

If i ever do headers I'll just have to get vise grips plyers to remove the stud right? Thanks

If your lucky yes. If not, heat up the area around it a little.

<-- Guess which ones quicker?.....Nope! Not even close.

Did you see any noticable power gains from the spark plug change?

Unless your plugs are old, or fouled, don't expect a power gain from plugs. The car just feels "better" after a plug change, not faster just better, hard to explain, but when it happens you notice.
