ratchet
7mm deep socket, 8, 10 mm sockets
fuel line disconnect tools
whatever size sockets the alternator bolts are (much easier sliding the intake out with the alternator removed)
antifreeze & distilled water (to replace what is lost when you drain some of the coolant prior to removal)

ah yes, that torque wrench is very important

Make sure that you have plenty of rags and paper towels handy. There will be lots of gunk around the intake ports on the head. I stuffed paper towels in the ports while scraping the gunk off. In fact, this was probably the most time consuming part for me. Be careful with the rigid vacuum lines, they will break very easily.
