Its Biatch but you can deff get it done with out the special tool. Also I assume you talking about the cam gears. If so just leave whole timing assembly on and then put the car in gear or just stop the flywheel from moving and you'll be good to go.

There's a method to do this using an old timing belt and 2 vice grips. It's on the site here somewhere.

the motor is seized and out of the car

i dont feel too comfortable hooking an allen key up to an impact gun, i have a feeling it will sheer off. i had the same problem with my ej18 awhile back and i wound up butchering the cam gears but luckily i had a few sets of them. i dont have that luxury with this motor.

Well if you can stop the flywheel from moving you can just get allan head socket/hex head sockets and a breaker bar and you should be go as gold...but yea you can also wrap your old timing belt around the gear with a vice grip and have a guy person hold the vice grip while you break it lose but that is alil bit of a pain. As you probably already know you might break one it happens...We broke one when trying to get mine off.

i bought a nice 1/2" drive snap-on 10mm (is it?) allen socket... that thing was built SOLID. that def. did the trick, not like the junky craftsman ones.

Air impact gun with the timing belt still on is the best way. A quick shot and they break loose. I have these engines apart a lot and that is how I do it, I wouldn't even bother with a cam wrench.
