When they talk about tools, most are standard everyday tools with exception of a vacuum pump and the hose crimper. I did not want to spend the money on the crimper. I measured and marked my hoses where I wanted them. Then I went to a local hydraulic hose shop to get them crimped. With the angle if the VA compressor fittings the shop could not do it. The shop had some that had less of a bend that would fit in their machine. It worked great. If anyone knows of a economic hand crimper, that would be of great use. Other than that, I live my gen 4 system. I getting ready to buy one for my 66 el camino very soon.
