You may want to take a good look in the manual first. The T-belt job on a 
3.0l *REQUIRES* (not "it's really great to have" like on a 2.7l) special 
tools and special procedures to deal with the oil pressure fed variable 
camshaft pulleys. The first on I did was a B!TCH, but if you take your time 
and pay attention it isn't _too_ bad.
