fune and easy

This is a very easy and satisfying job. Takes about 1.5 hrs. Plan on replacing the rubber breathers to the injectors I would also replace the main breathers that feed them too. The rubber at your cars age will be brittle. I would also recommend having something to blow out the area, compressed air works very well. Also buy the plastic injector holders they come with green seals. I would also buy new injector seals too, with out the injectors probably about $4 an injector for both parts. I also replaced my injectors but need to as two where questionable.
Have fun!
p.s. No special tools although using a pipe wrench makes it easier than standard wrenches.
