Pulling the Hornet's engine

Basic plan is to do a complete re-seal, including the heads. I'll probably paint the oil pan as well, and maybe the engine. I'll check clearances on the oil and water pump, and replace them if I have to.
So, before I tear into this, are there any special tools I'll need? I already have basic hand and air tools, a torque wrench, a set of feeler gauges. Also, any tips that apply specifically to these engines? I've replaced head gaskets before, but never on a subaru.

If you run in to anything pm me.
Here's some thing to think about.
Are you going to replace the valve seals? If so, you'll need a spring tool.
Replacing the piston rings will raise you compression.
If the bearings turn out to be shot, who will be able to get them for you quick.

I have a turbo motor that I'm thinking about completely rebuilding, but that won't be until later.
As for parts, I have a place that can get me stuff in a hurry. They give me the jobber price, and a deal on freight charges.
