*Sometimes if we could flip cars over on a wheel, it would make life easier too*
It turns out, and I don't know how this happened but when I bought 3 Iridium plugs for the rear bank, because of the insane nature of having to remove the whole upper manifold to get at them, they sold me plugs that are about two nickels stacked on top of one another thicker than the plugs in the front bank. I just simply used some old 764 Double Platinums that were being discontinued in the front area along the fan, and used the more expensive iridium ones. So I guess they are referred to as being a "hotter" plug because more plug is in the area where the explosion happens in the cylinder itself.
The fun part is, the iridium ones aren't even for this car. They are for a 90-97 Ford Mustang. Oddly enough, I think they really worked good, and were nowhere near as worn down on the points as the "right" ones were in the front. Probably went about 50k on what should be a 100k plug. Testing the wires, I didn't get a shock along anywhere, and each wire had a good spark.
I took out a Warm Coil pack. And it seemed to be slightly out of the range it should be. The thing that is bugging me really bad is, when I first started I tested the Coil Pack at 1.0, 1.0, 0.5 Ohms on the Primary winding, and I forget on the secondary, but it was 0.2kohms outside of the range it should be. Now when I test it cold it's 12.8/0.5 on all coils.
The new one I just got from Amazon, tests out at 13.1/0.5 on all coils. Did I just buy a coil pack for no reason or what?
