I'd say you'll be covered going off the fitting instructions you'll get with the DS Induction kit along with the How-to that Martin from Torquesteer has posted in the tech section for how to do the RS cover mod. Just to cover yourself it wouldn't hurt to get a bottle of coolant from your local dealer so you can mix some up to top-up the coolant system depending how much you lose when you re-route the coolant pipe as per Martins instructions.

Maybe some electrical tape and flexi-conduit too for adding protection to some of the wiring looms which are moved about for relocating the ECU?

I seem to have the knack with it now - yep 4 bolts to drop the radiator cradle then once the ECU cover is off and you remove the ECU plus the wiring loom elbow and air intake scoop, you can pull it up out of it's rubbers, slide it over to the ECU side and swing it upwards and out. Tis tight but surprisingly straight forward.

Of course don't blame me if you find you have to refit it and can't work out how the hell to get it back in
