I don't think you'll need a special tool, a few of my friends have them and have mixed feelings, the rpms drop a lot faster with a light weight it seems like

No special tool needed, just a big breaker bar and someone holding the brakes.

No special tools needed, and you honestly dont need another person to hold the brakes. I just put it in 5th and jammed a 2x4 on the brake when I did mine. the breaker bar is an ABSOLUTE must though!

it's a stretch fit ac belt on the 08+ so no tensioner. i got my crank pulley off without putting anything to hold the brakes, just had it in 3rd gear with a long breaker bar

Which pully did you use? I'm planning to put one in when I do my timing belt kit and head gaskets in a few months. I have been looking at grimmspeed and perrin.
