Pull the wires out of the top of the motor, they have a long plastic boot on the end of the wire. Using a spark plug socket and a long extension you will be able to remove the spark plugs. Check the gap on your new plugs and I like to use a section of hose that fits on the top of the spark plug to to thread the plug back in. That way you reduce the chance of cross threading. Once you get them started you can tighten them down. I usually replace the wires when I replace the plugs. I would suggest replacing the plugs/wires one at a time to reduce the risk of mixing the wires up.
Screwed into the head.
Same as you normally would in any other car, depends on the spark plugs.
Put the IROC up on jack stands and remove the spark plugs from under the engine.

You must remove the three plastic cowling parts in order to get to the spark plugs. Small screws hold the three pieces in place. This is not difficult, just be careful, unfasten the screws and don't use excessive force or else there is danger that the cowling pieces can be damaged. Place all screws in a box so they don't get lost during dissassembly.
a four cylinder use four.
They are screwed into the cylinder head, at the end of the plug wires.
