I had a shop do my timing belt, and I provided them with the cam tool since it's cheap. After researching on here I also had the following preventative maintenance:

timing cover seal
valve cover gasket
VCT solenoid
water pump & gasket

I didn't want to deal with any of these known-issue parts giving me grief down the road, one fell swoop kinda thing.
I should have also done the cam and crank seals.
