You'll need a torque wrench and a torque angle meter.
Be careful not to break the oil sender on intake removal.
Don't be suprised to find one or two broken exhaust manifold bolts in the heads...depending on the mileage of the car
Buy new heads bolts and gaskets before you start.
Soak the new lifters in a jug of oil before installing them
Make sure head bolt threads are clean and no coolant is in them before re-installing heads.

Pop the pins up that secure the cowl seal. Those little bastages are hand shredders.

most importantly!! you have to take the top one out last because the bolt has no space to move out as you losen it.
make sure you yell lots of curse words at it while you fight it.

Can't you just remove the...uhh forgot what its called.. but the shield thats between the heads to look at your lifters and cam? I've got my heads off as well right now, but I haven't actually took this "shield" off.. just a thought. If you do remove it you will need a new seal for it.
