Just wanted to add the part numbers needed to do this job. FYI, the Felpro kit does not have all the necessary gaskets. There are 5 gasket on the underside of each cover. This is a very big job, so I'd say it's worth spending the money to put in OEM. You don't want to do this job again!
Here they are:

Yes get a seal puller and lift from the inside on the bottom of the seal (top of valve cover).Any hints on how to get the old tube seals out? I'm worried about scratching the soft metal of the valve cover with a screwdriver. The FSM says to tape a screwdriver and pry them out but there really isn't anything to pry against, so to speak.
Remove the bolts holding the pipes on, including the bolt on the front and the one on the back. Remove a couple of hoses so you can move the pipes out of the way. I was replacing my heater tees so I had some hoses already pulled off. You will only lose a small amount of coolant.Hey @Supra88 and @Hoosier Daddy , any tips on the "water by-pass assembly"? It's the pair of pipes on the passenger side that you move aside to do the plugs.

That's not a problem. However, as you know from posts above, I'm in the process of replacing the gaskets so I need to remove the valve cover and this thing is in the way. Am I correct in assuming there is coolant in there? If so, how much? I just replaced my coolant a few weeks ago and I don't want half of that expensive Toyota SLLC pouring out. I've thought about draining the radiator some into a clean bucket and then when I'm done with the valve covers and everything plugged back up, pouring the coolant back in.
Also, any tips on getting the hoses off easily? It's been a real PITA so far on the hoses I've managed to remove.
Congrats on accomplishing a very big undertaking! You'll be fine without the FIPG.Hey guys, finally finished this up yesterday. Took about 2.5 long days. As others have said, the time and difficulty is mostly around getting everything out of the way and then put back together. I spent nearly 35 minutes trying to get one small bolt back in place. Not sure if it was a critical bold because all it did was hold a wire bundle in place but did not want that bundle jiggling around and eventually shorting some wires out.
I'm sure someone with more experience could do it in significantly less time than I did but I wanted to make sure I was being methodical about it. Even still, I got every put back together and only then realized that the plug that connects to the air breather box was dangling behind the water pipes. Had to remove the air breather box and loosen several bolts again to get the wire out so it could be plugged in.
I did put the RTV on one side because other folks were suggesting it be done. However, it only needs to be done in two small sections of the rim and not the entire rim. It did NOT get done on the first side I did because I'd already buttoned it up before a consensus was reached on whether it should or should not be included. I'll let you know if the un-RTV'ed side starts to leak. Praying it does not.
Thanks for your help and quick responses @Supra88 !
