Maybe a sticky idea? What are some specialty tools or absolute must have tools when working on the FoST? And when are said specialty tools needed?
So far, a good selection of torx
Stretchy belt remover/installer(ac belt)
Vacuum bleeder (clutch/brakes)

So far I haven't done anything to this car that required any specialty tools. There are some things that are easier, such as brake bleeding. If you want to know about specialty tools buy a VW. I hate triple squares and do not wish them upon anyone.

Breaker bar, long socket extension, at least 24 inches, if you plan on doing any modding.

E-Socket set. I honestly did not know what it was until this car.

Lol. I was an auto technician for almost 20 years before doing what I do now. I have little Tupper ware containers with different special tools and sockets labeled with the specific job all over my garage.

So far from what I've seen its pretty much the basics and ford's newfound love for torx heads.
I was just curious. It never fails for me to have something torn apart in my driveway and I find out that I needed a t40+ not a standard t40 (yes that's a real thing!) And it's something I can't get from the local businesses, I have to wait for snap on or order it.
