Question 4.6L 2wd 2004-2008 Spark Plug changing

Okay I am sure there are threads out there. But I am doing mine tomorrow after work and want to get one last detailed run-down.

What do I need to remove the cool-paks off so I can get to the spark-plugs. Or am I wrong in thinking I have to do this? I bought my 8 spark plugs this afternoon and a 5/8 socket with the boot to remove my plugs.

And do I need to take off the what I am guessing is injector lines (silver parts right about what I am assuming is plugs).

Well thanks for any help in advance.
Only mods this truck will have when I am done is...
CAI, Dual pipes y'ed off. (Single pipe then y it out after the cats, with no muffler tipps out the back at an angel)
And hopefully a programmer to help with fuel Eff.

Well thansk in advance for any and all help (Hopefully with these upgrades I can still run my motorcraft plugs, but if not best plug to get guys!@)

4.6 is simple to do plugs. The coil packs take a 7mm socket and i didnt use a swivel just a 1/4" ratchet.

Its still a very simple plug swap you should have no issues.
