Go buy you a manual. It might even give you some pointers about how to do this without the special parts that hold the engine up after you remove the front mount. Plan your work, and make sure you have everything you need handy. When DIY or paying for a timing belt you should also replace the tensioner and water pump which are both housed under the timing cover. You will have to remove the motor's accessories to access the timing cover and the belt underneath.

A good mechanic can do it in a day (or less) and a novice with the right tools and nothing out of the ordinary happening can do it in a weekend easily.
Be eclectic.

Moderating everything now, let me know if I can help.
