Hey guys,

I'm looking at the task of replacing my upper and lower intake manifold gaskets, head gaskets, valve cover gaskets and any others that come with a gasket kit. Also looking at a thorough cleaning of my injectors and replacing orings and such.

I am just looking for some tips and more tutorials. I have viewed, saved, and will refer to some of the great and informative posts on this site to help me through some of it.

I guess I am looking for tools needed, torx sizes(I know my haynes list some of them) and anything else that will be helpful. You guys have helped me get my X back into fighting shape and I have tackled a lot of problems myself with confidence thanks to all your support.

Thanks in advance!
