You need those plastic tools to remove the fuel line in the middle. Other than that it's pretty straight forward.

You do not have to split the fuel rails apart....

It makes a little easier without the tube in the way. But either way.

No problem, just make sure you have the engine cleaned before hand.

Also be careful with gaskets, they're about $30.

I just did my valve covers last week. no special tools required. Basic hand tools. If you're careful the stock valve cover gaskets are re usable. I reused mine (I know I should have just bought them) and I have 0 leaks.
