Well, Logan, I had the exploding spark plug problems with my 98, the pieces all went thru the exhaust just fine, (several times) but to cure the #8 detonation, I had to replace the plenum gasket. I couldn't figure out what was causing the #8 misfire, and detonation, with the exploding spark plug prob, for a long time, initially, now any misfire code pretty much tells me that the prob is that flippin gasket.
