Toyota timing belt anyone?

Anyway, wondering how hard it is and if there's any special things to consider. I've pointed him to the online ebay kits.

I'd reccomend asking on the 4x4wire or searching under the Toyota section for some first hand advice on the newer model V6. Might be alot easier.
Here's what mine looked like 1/2 way though. Kept finding bad sensors and split hoses. Sucked. Took about a month to fix.

I do agree, the 3VZ timing belts are a pain in the arse!
(3VZ = 3 liter, 5VZ = 3.4 liter) the 5VZ is the better of the two, 3VZs are known for blowing head gaskets, but apperently there was a recall on them, and in most cases if you have one that's never had the modifications performed and it blows a head gasket, Toyota will replace it.
