I may also add,
I recommend you get one of those little mirrors on a telescoping wands...
this to be able to look into the spark plug holes. for signs of oil etc.
and to be able to see in hard to reach places.

I dont recall if the 2011 have the plastic or aluminum intake.
But I recommend you take that little mirror and look around the back side of the intake to make sure there isnt a lot of sand debris built up on the backside-- that could fall into the engine when you lift up the intake.

I didnt know this until I did mine.
But as a precaution I took my vacuum and inserted it into the holes in case anything fell in... I didnt see anything-- but just to be safe.

Youll want to lift up gently...
as you can see over time there is buildup around those parts.

Regarding plugs, I'm having a hard time finding the AC Delcos 41-109's,

Im guessing its different for Ontario-- but worth a look...

I bought mine through Amazon.
At the time, Amazon/ACDELCO had a promo.
I selected 6- and they gave me 1 free, (so paid for 5).
Not only that, Amazon linked me- to a mail in rebate of $2 off Per plug....which I mailed in, and received my check.

pricing details here...

NGK is better than Bosch. Removing the manifold isn't that big of a deal, it's just a PITA. Take your time and make sure you get everything buttoned back in place when you put it back together.

Have been following spark plug threads and feel like this is something that I can do, and want to get my items in order.

I'm just a bit weary of removing the manifold... but I think I'm up to it.  Will have to buy a new gasket also.

Regarding plugs, I'm having a hard time finding the AC Delcos 41-109's, which I would prefer, but can easily get Bosch or NGK's...  So lets talk about Bosch and NGK.

Does anyone have any input with either the Bosch or NGK?   The NGK's were recommended by the parts counter guy, and I've read that the OEM plugs were actually NGK in disguise.  Has anyone else used these plugs recently, and can you offer any input regarding performance/reliability?  Do these work as good as the ACD's?

BTW - I'm at ~113K (= approx 70,000 miles)

It will take some getting use to the differences.  They do have a gallery for photographs though.  Which many have been wanting.

By "well equipped" I mean everything the new Envision has available. 60K would put it right in line with well equipped Lexus RX350, Acura MDX and Infiniti QX60.
