Honestly you'd be amazed at what a basic hand tool set and some work will do.
-You can re seal your fuel bowl and rebuild your fuel pressure regulator for about $100 bucks and a few hours (solves 90% fuel leaks)
-rebuild turbo and replace exterior o rings on pedestal for about $150 and a few hours (soles most rear engine o leaks)
-replace o rings on oil cooler $70 and couple hours
-replace leaky hpop lines $130 from cnc fav few hours and only need basic hand tools still
-replace coolant hoses $60 30 minutes
*most leaks are not related to the hpop itselt but the items above
*fuel lines don't usually leak in the engine bay but basic hand tools
anything else like water pump, belts, can be done at home.
about the only super serious repair and restoration would be the engine oil pan because most times you remove the engine. (some can undo engine mounts, cut cross memebers and replace but serious).
a couple special tools for front and rear axel oil seals to keep gear oil from hitting front/rear wheel bearings but front wheel bearings come in hub assembly units super easy to replace etc. u joints and ball joints at home unless you have a buddy with a press etc.
you can do 90% of the big stuff at home with help from a buddy and save a ton!
