A timing light ($40-$60) a special distributer bolt wrench ($10-$15) and a socket wrench. Takes maybe 15 minutes, when you buy the timing light it should have instructions. But you should probably buy a Chilton or Haynes manual as it will have the instructions on how to do it and all of your cars specs. And which spark plug wire is number 1 cylinder, (looking at the motor from the front, it is the first spark plug wire on the left)

Also if you advance your timing your going to have to run 91+ octane gas and your ECU might not take the adjustment correctly and make your car run like ****

As long as the spout connector is removed when you make adjustments you should be fine. Unplug it with motor off. Set timing. Then shut motor off and plug back in. Be careful and listen for detonation afterwards.
