Some thoughts :

I ran into a few problems.

I had to use 2 vice grips, and old timing belt as strap wrench to get the Cam Sprockets off.

I couldnt get one of the Cam Cap bolts off, as it rounded.
I had to dremel a slot, and use a Cold chisel to loosen it.

Make sure you use a high quality 12 point 14MM socket for the heads.
Cheap ones don't have good tolerance and slip.
I ended up using a Kobalt socket from Lowes.

Also, I damaged the Timing Belt Covers, as they are plastic, so be careful.
Timing Belt Pulley was hard to get off too...
