There is a slight chance that I will be switching from Di2 to EPS in the near future. Having not ridden on Campagnolo since about 1995, I don't have any of their special installation tools. What all will I need? Chain tool? BB spanner? Cassette tool?

I switched from DA to Campy (not by choice) and after a year of riding Campy I still prefer Shimano. It's like going from butter to margarine, plus maintenance and parts replacement are outrageous. So far the only tool I had to purchase was a bottom bracket wrench, and a chain tool but that's because my bike has the over sized bottom bracket bearing, not sure what the other campys are.....I say don't do it.

If you had a Campy cassette lockring tool in 1995, then I believe you can still use it today. (It’s the same tool used to install/remove the old square-taper bottom bracket cartridge.) If you never had one, then you’ll have to buy one. Park makes one which I’m sure costs less than the Campy model. Believe it or not, the splines on the UT bottom bracket cups are the same as everybody else’s, so any outboard bearing tool should work. The 11 speed chain tool is extremely expensive. You might just be better off buying an 11 speed KMC chain with a master link.

Pedros makes a chain tool compatible with Campy 11 chains. Not as slick as Campy's but a lot cheaper
BTW the Pedros tool works on 8, 9, and 10 speed chains too.
