I saw this though:

You have any issues with this?
Yes, I did, and wondered WTF was causing it. LOL, I happened to have a thin wall so it worked out. You might not find "coil removal tool" on the Z.

Not exactly what I saw, but close. ^

AOO, did you replace the wire that leads from the coil to the lower bank plugs? Is it even replaceable? I don't see anything about it in the manual.
I would just do the tops man. Bottoms I will prolly push to 120k or so.


EDIT: FOUND IT! Coil puller they showed me:



I bought it for $4 at harbor freight for the next time I have to do it.
