Why need a shop when you have an abundance of helping hands on this site? We always get together and do install meets so im sure we can get together and help u eith a timing belt change.

What u will notice here is we are a tight group of friends who work on cars and love doing it and helping others. Once u work on cars with us enough then u eill be able to do it urself. Thats how i learned. Now the timing belt is something i cant do yet but will learn one day.

Im still shocked hehe. I work on all my cars but something like clutch in a fwd or inner block... Nope not yet for me. I installed the whole turbo kit, components and clutch and flywheel (<-- this with some help) on my genesis my self. I also designed and welded the exhaust system it had. So its not that i dont have skills but timing belt ive never done and one wrong move can cost $$$$ so i leave that to someone that knows what they are doing.

Myself, Zab, Sleepyboy and SvviftSVT have all done the SVT Focus Timing Belt and both Sleepyboy and myself have the tools.

If you need some help, just let us know.

Welcome and AWESOME! More Houston focus peeps. Everyone around here is super nice and if we can help out we do, I have seen a couple timing belt changes done around town but don't know where to begin to do it myself.

Keep an eye out as we do do the meets monthly and we occasionally do random meet ups like the Auto-x this Sunday so there is normally stuff going on all the time.
