Good jack and stands will serve you forever, as will a nice tool chest.

Ratchet wrenches are nice to have
Torque wrench is a must.

I am a Toolmaker by trade, so being accurate is in my blood. I always like having a set of 6" Dial Calipers in the garage. Measures OD, ID, Depths, ect. Kind of funny sometimes when I go to a hardware store looking for a particular bolt or something, and I whip out my own calipers in front of the guy who works there.

CAI, Dynatech Headers, HF Cats, JRE Tuned, Corsa Cat Back, Strut Tower Brace.

If you own a 5th Gen Convertible, probably just a can of gasoline and a lighter.

A brain. A lot of people here are lacking that important tool first off. Miss that and all the tools in the world are not going to help you. Watch the advice you get in here. People are not what they seem to be.

Be sure to ask for the Metric BFH. The late model cars allways need those.

Duct tape and WD-40.

I feel it only fair to warn you, I have a black belt in CAPS LOCK.

Be award that WD40 is a water displacer/lubricant. Not a penetrant. Spraying rusty bolts with WD40 is a waste of time and money.
