You can't use the 1 1/8 wrench on an STI. I did it this way. I put two of the flywheel bolts in and used a wrench between them that was long enough to touch the engine stand mounts. That way the crank bolt doesn't tighten and you can use both hands to loosen the cam gear bolts. It also makes it a one person job instead of 2+ like others have needed. I also found out that the Snap-on 10mm 1/2" drive hex socket was very strong and would not break like craftsman and several other that I broke. It lists of $20 but its worth it because you break several $10 sockets and never get one bolt loose.
