Just follow the standard 60k service. Cam locks are a HUGE help, as well as some clips to hold the belt in place. Just make sure when your bolting your cam caps back down to torque to spec and in sequence.

My username was aorozco2 (Abraham Orozco) but just decided to change it to just Abraham.

And what I wanted to run by someone else is if I have the belt around the crank and decide to bolt down the exhaust cam on the rear bank and put the belt on it and put a clip to hold it and the bolt doen the intake cam on the rear bank and put another clip in place to hold it and do the same with the other back and at the end pull thepin on the tensioner to take some of the extra slack. Would it work?

That is not how you set the tension. The slack should be taken up when you pretension the tensioner pulley. Please refer to the service manual for setting the timing and tension on the timing belt.

Then how it would be the easiest way to do it keeping in mind that I don't have the cam lockers.

And can some one point me in the right direction as far as setting the tension goes.

Not when you can make them out of 3 dollars worth of Quicksteel and some plastic bags.

Abraham, now that you've removed the timing belt, you need to follow the procedure specified in the manual for reinstalling it and setting proper tension. There' really aren't any major shortucts you can take, nor would you want to with valve timing.

Further, for future reference, you do not need to remove the cams to replace lifters. You simply need a screwdriver to pop the rocker arms out, and then a screwdriver and some manliness to pop the rockers back in.

Ok another question.

So if the belt were to snap while the car is off, how would the valves end up?

What I'm trying to get at is if the cams were installed on a head would you be able to set the head on a flat surface. With out any one the valves sticking out?
