Buy the best tools you can, they'll be worth it in the end if you plan to stick with this hobby if not buy some cheap tools.

I have some EDS tools and they hold up very nicely. Honestly I would just stick with craftsman, dewalt, snap on, etc. With HUDY, EDS included, you mostly paying for the name.

A set of ball-end allen wrenches can come in handy. I have a few that I have cut the end off so I can put it in a drill for tightening/loosening some of the bigger bolts.

The OEM tool set and perhaps some bits for a electric driver is a good place to start. Then add some cleaning brushes and stainless caliper that can measure accurately to the nearest 1mm. I found a 3gallon garden sprayer ideal for pin point cleaning.
