About 7 months ago I pulled the eaton off and cleaned the IC, changed the plugs and filled the silencer holes, also added a oil separator, I'm about to add a 6lb lower so I'm going to put fresh tr6 with the proper gap in it, my question is would it just be easier to pull the SC off to change them or leave it on, another concern I have is in 7 months my separator has only caught a few drops of oil, so I'm wondering if it's covering my Ic again, so i figured i would pull it and check, thanks for the advice men.

i personally wouldnt pull the supercharger just for a plug change... but if you pull the intake breather hose you should see if it has oil in it. i would say if so its still getting in. if its dry, i wouldnt think its sucking oil in the TB

Which hose are you referring to? What swivels and extensions are necessary to change the plugs if I leave it on, thanks.

You'll need a good selection of extensions & definitely a 1/4" drive, 7mm swivel socket. If you pull the air intake & look for oil collecting in it & the throttle body. If there's not much there then I wouldn't bother with the intercooler.

No need to pull it. I used to do my plugs with the fuel rails and EGR in place. Practice makes perfect.

Which plugs will be the hardest to get to with the SC in place, and what are some tricks to make it easier?

The back 2 maybe 4 are going to be the hardest ones to get to!! All I can say is if you get frustrated with it just walk away for a minute and calm down cause those plugs with the supercharger on are a b**ch to get to!!!!
