The only special tool I had to use was a C shaped allen wrench setup that you can purchase from the shop for $20. The problem is not that difficult. I would really hate to see someone fork over $3K to $4K for labor to a shop for this job. I had not done this type work before. I bought a M/B manual and followed the directions without any trouble. 2K miles later down the road and she runs better than ever with no oil leaks. I did not have to use heli-coil inserts upon reassembly. I simply used a nylon bore brush to clean up the holes and oiled the head bolts and all went together superbly. Don't be intimidated, this is not rocket science.
