    Problem solved... just booked an appointment with my local tuner/mechanic to do the job.

    After finding out how much the cam wrenches will be, forget it, ill pay the extra few hundred and enjoy the convenience of letting someone else doing it.

    The easiest way to get the bolt off the crankshaft pulley is to get a friend and have them put the car into 5th gear and step on the brake, makes it much easier to pull it off! Hope this helps

    Good chioce if you know you can trust them to do the job correctly, I wish the guys in NJ (Precision Tuning) were closer to me and I would have had them do the job, becasue quite frankly its a big PITA and you must have at least 1 other person to help out and or proper tools other wise you would screw it up, but presonally I didn't know a mechanic that could do a better job than myself and that would be trustworthy.....and the times that I saw how they work on cars I know better then to give them my car.

    I had never done it before and after a lot of research it came out just fine on the first try.
    new to the forum...i tried the breaker bar trick yesterday and it worked perfectly....try unplugging the coil to keep the motor from turning over. also keep a few sets of wood clamps handy they work great in keeping the timing marks on the belt lined up
