Good set of Air tools??

Well I just finished off my cat back and did it all with hand tools and a dremel and came to a realization when I was grinding down the exhaust bolts with my dremel....I NEED AIR TOOLS!! So I am planning to do the header and most of teh other car work by myself. What kind of air tools other than an impact wrench do you guys recommend to buy to help out with these installs?? Also as far as an air tank how big of an air tank do you all use and the psi rating? Thanks for all the help!!

An impact wrench is good, I also like to use 3/8 and 1/4 drive air ratchets. A cut off wheel, a die grinder and an air chisel.

As far as a compressor goes, shop around and talk to the distributor, alot of companies advertise their output in different ways.

craftsman is fine for you , look at the specs you can get ones that imitate ir ones that are craftsman and just as powerfull but less expensive , i work on cars everyday , and i cant say craftsman air tool wear or break anyfaster than a snap on ,matco , mac or what ever . for exhaust a 3/8 gun , is handy(with swivels) , if your getting a compresor and plan on do this alot or this in the future go get a big one 60 gallon its more cost effective , if not a 30 gal wil do .

man i spell bad
