When I priced the header gaskets (metal o-rings), they were $18 each - and you 
need 8 of them so I did not pull the headers. (did not want to take the chance 
of needing to buy them)

I was able to do the job but it was definately a PITA. If you have access to a 
welder, I think you could make a nice tool cheap out of a box end wrench - 
basically make a crows foot type tool out of the box side - not the open side.
