fsa mega exo bb to ultegra 6600 bb

I'm switching out from an FSA Omega Triple w/ Mega Exo external bottom bracket to a full Ultegra 6600 double setup.

I need to know which bottom bracket tools I need to purchase to complete the job, I've already got a crank puller.

Thanks guys for the help!

8 and 5mm allen wrenches and a bb cup tool like the Park BBT 19 for removing the old one, same bb cup tool and 5mm allens and a TL-FC16 adjuster cap tool to install new one (although if you're creative you could live without the TL-FC16, don't think Shimano includes it with the crank any more although they're like $2.50). Instructions for the cranks here https://road.fullspeedahead.com/fly.a...layout=product and here https://techdocs.shimano.com/media/te...9830607279.pdf

ps Yep, forgot the torque wrench like pmt says. Unless you're confident in your abilities to determine torque...
