My list includes items not precisely called "syntax and grammar" but without
which one simply cannot do any work in the Greek NT...

Blass-Debrunner, "A Greek Grammar of the New Testament and Other Early
Christian Literature".

Bart Ehrman, "The Orthodox Corruption of Scripture".

Kurt Aland, "The Text of the New Testament"

Bruce Metzger, "Manuscripts of the Greek Bible: An Introduction to Paleography".

A.T. Robertson, "A Grammar of the New Testament in the Light of Historical

Moulton/Turner, "Grammar of New Testament Greek", 4 vols.

Moulton/Geden, "Concordance to the Greek Testament".

Again, in my little view, one cannot do work in the language of the NT
without these.
