Welcome to the forum!

Listen to what Quickone4u said and you cannot go wrong. The SVT engines are pretty strong if you do your part by using quality oil and changing it frequently (3,000 no more than 5,000).

If you don't have a lot of experience working with cars then I would recommend that you hire someone to do the timing belt replacement for you. I have replaced timing belts on several cars and the SVT was the most frustrating one to replace so far.
