Penetrating oil for the up-pipe - bolts. Give it lots of time to work, if you can. But it really depends on the corrosion level. Anti-seize and blue thread fastener is needed for some threads.

Torque wrench is a must for some, if not all fasteners. No other special tools except metric. Power tools will make it faster, but definitely not required or recommended for the install.

Southend's write up is 100 times more detailed than the repair manual! It almost took as long to read the write up as it did to remove my EGR cooler. But for that one, the engine was already on a stand.
