Get an engine stand and engine puller while you're at it.

No you don't need to pull it but it'* probably easier if you did. Talk to Boosty. He can pull an engine in 2 hours with the right tools.
An engine puller, leveler and engine stand make it super simple. All should cost about $300.
If not you will need to drop your subframe or cut a hole in your fender well.

Plus it'* so much easier to work on with it on an engine stand.

i bought the good year racing 200 foot pound tork gun 1/2 drive (24 volts battery operated) and it took off my harmonic balancer like nothing after every one here told me it would not work,

it was the best $80 i ever spent..

wow... you must be either buying things that are crap that we all know already or you are not using them the right way.

Iv been buying HF tools for over 5 years now. Iv only broke 1 tool (1).
A Breaker bar. and that was with a 3 foot pipe on the end of it.

Yea if you buy the $10 30pease socket set, then yes it crap. but there higher end stuff thats still cheaper is good quality for the price.
AND... most of all there hand tool have a lift time warranty on it

air tools should allow me to pull the sc, LIM, etc in 15 minutes tops. Putting it back on requires some patience since I intend to do this by hand.

here is my list....anything I'm forgetting or should be avoiding?

I want to make sure I have everything to take on a possible header install, rocker install, cam install, etc....

Thats agreed... You by garbage you get garbage..

I like Harbor freight.... some of the stuff is really cheap... But they do have decent stuff if you know what to look for.. I have to force myself to leave the store... If I don't I'll have a trunk full of stuff...

I also Like Craftsman, Kobalt, Husky, Stanley...

If you're running air tools I would recommend a larger compressor tank.....20 gal.

Big X2

If your using the Air ratchet or Grinder or something that uses a lot of air. a 13gal tank does not last long. it has to re fill like every 2min

I've had great luck with Harbor Freight. Ive had 1 or 2 problems with tools but they are always willing to make it right so they keep getting my business.
