    take the coils off on at least the passenger side, it helps give you room to get to the back bolts. as far as tools all you need, off the top of my head, is an 8mm and a 10mm socket and a screwdriver. if you are automatic, you might want to unbolt the trans dipstick to get at the back bolt.

    Also just to add to that, be VERY VERY careful of the "Oil Pressure Sending Unit" directly behind the intake, if you aren't careful you will break it off, and then you need another tool to remove the old one and that can be a bitch.....wear gloves too or else your hands will be scratched to shit!

    Gloves, definitely! And we aren't talking latex gloves, either. You need gloves with some substance to them, because latex gloves can easily be cut to shreds.
