Have a friend help you.
Count and write down the number of teeth between the top dead center of crank gear and tdc of each cam gear (very important)
Be ready to empty coolant so that you can remove top radiator hose, you'll have much more room to work without that in the way.
Have a large allen wrench ready (dont know the exact size) so you can rotate each cam gear back to its proper location if it moves at all.
Find illustrated directions online and refer to them during the process.
Good Luck, its a fun one!

^^^There are stickies to help.

You don't need to count teeth. All belts are marked for cam position. Other than that, you should replace all pullies and the water pump while you are in there. Don't forget to replace the tensioner as well.

Only somewhat special tool you'll need is a 10mm allen head socket.
