I ended up using the stubby version of this for the lower aft bolts on that valve cover. Racheting wrenches are a lifesaver sometimes.

you can get the gearwrench set and ratchet wrenches at sears, thats where I got my stuff from.

Torquing the back two injectors is easily done with a 4" long torx bit socket with a low profile flexhead torque wrench. I dont mess with extensions and swivels with these things, they're too brittle to strip, not fun to get out either once they are.

Well guys no real update I officially wasted an entire 5 hours on a stupid trans cooler… after 5 drill bits and a grinding wheel I got the oem rivets out and the bpd lowering bracket on and installed the cooler just to realize the trans lines need cut shorter so I have to pull the cooler yet again… once I relized that I decided I could not take the trans cooler anymore and called it a night

5 drill bits? Dude, medium speed, medium pressure...cutting oil. If you don't have cutting oil, use hydraulic fluid or tranny fluid. Do I need to come finish this for you Gary?? :
