    Is the timing belt that much of a hassle? I know I'm going to have to do mine soon

    The worst part is that you have to reach your hands in between the engine and engine bay with less than 2" of clearance.

    Even some of my socket wrenches wouldn't fit in there, I had to go to "1/4 sockets.

    The "how to" made all the difference for me... Tons of tricks and know how.

    I made some amendments at the end of the how-to.

    That sounds like a fuck that I'll pay someone to do the belt.

    It's not that bad at all. The first time mine broke it took me about 3 days, but that was because nobody had the tensioner spring in stock and I had to order it lol. The second time I had it replaced, put back together and running in around 2 hours.
