    what engine is it. On VTEC heads, it is a little harder because of clearance issues. Find a post by LSVTEC for his recomendations on Valve spring compressors. Your also going to need to need a good feeler gauge and a wrench to do adjust valve lash when you assemble. Snap on tools makes a great VTEC valve lash tool, however it is pricey at around $80. Also, you may need to have the valve seats reground/machined, and to do that, you need very expensive tools. For the machine work, i would recommend you take it to a good machine shop.

    Also, have a helms with you.
