Question Need advice on which tools?

Going to change my injectors over Christmas break. All the info and articles and videos say I am going to need T30 & T40 Torx at least 2" long to pull the injectors and oil manifold. What I can not find out is this the star bit I need or a T40 & T 30 Torx Socket? Can any one tell me for sure?

Thanks ahead of time.

Torx bit is what they mean. Altho I have come across a few with bolt heads and phillips but I figure those were to replace lost or broken bolts.

get yourself a lisle T30 1/4 drive socket for the 2 rail bolts under the evap box

Amazon Amazon

this is perfect for sneaking in there to loosen those damn bolts. It'll just clear the rail and be no where near the box. as for the injectors themselves you'll need a long T40 socket but most are too long. I have one I cut down so the bit is just long enough to clear the injector body.

Oh by the way, after early jan 2006 the injector hold downs changed to T45, keep that in mind also depending on what year you have
