Double up on the 13, the 14 is useless, the 11 only if you are doing break
lines..... 10, 13 X 2, 15, 17X 2 & 19 will do for most road jobs........
 Hexs are only for pullling the cam cover 6mm, and the charge air temp 5mm
and the 3mm T handle for the fuel mix....  A torque wrench for those alloys
and rotor interface is good too.....  All the above wrenches in sockets will
make you much more prepared.....  Shave one of the 13 thin and the pads can
be switched easily......  A 6in adj and a pair of channel locks can be
invaluable in nowhere chevyville.......
