You're going to have to pull the intake manifold so you'll need those too.

I'd power-wash the engine and soak the intake bolts with a healthy dose of penetrating oil over night.

I'm not sure of your experience but if you cover your bases and there's not any unforeseen circumstances 2-3 hours tops.

Yep. You'll have to unhook the throttle body (cables wires etc.) Pick up an $8 set of fuel line tools so you can pop that off, The dist. stays.

I've never used RTV on the couple I've done. You will need a torque wrench, the specs, and sequence to install/torque the bolts. I have the service manual on pdf. I think I downloaded it from a link on this site.

New bolts aren't a bad idea, I re-used the main bearing bolts on a 350 build years ago, 10 minutes after it started I heard the death rattle of a thrown rod. Another thing I do is run a tap down the threads with some WD40 to clean out the threads, then use some blue lock tite (I do this on pretty much anything I do) be sure to blow the WD out with degreaser (I use brake clean) Hope that helps
