Well, got mine done this weekend. Sorry for whoever requested a write up. I didn't have time to take all those pics, as well as write it all up.
The job is a huge PITA. Just getting to the actual timing components took us close to 6 hours. All in, about 20 hours to get it all done. Runs like a champ now, and will be doing the oil change tonight to get any metal shavings out of the system. Chain was stretched about 3/4inch.
-Make sure you have a good gear puller, the main crank pulley has a really long engagement and takes a lot to get off. Additionally, when installing it back on, you need a longer bolt with some washers to pull it on enough to get the crank bolt to engage.
-Some of the intake plumbing is hard to get disconnected from the turbos. Rotate the clamps when you get them off to make them easier to get on later.
-Get the steel cam holding tools. I got plastic ones on ebay, and they broke from the cylinder pressure alone(got a refund).
-Use an adjustable crescent wrench on the cams to hold them in place while you take the phasers off and put them back on.
-Replace both belts while you're in there.
-GET THE SERVICE MANUAL! Access is only 20 bucks for 72 hours, and it was the biggest help on the whole job. Being able to look at the official process with colored diagrams, and get all torque specs was a life saver.
I finished mine last night
Between the puller and the long m12x1.5 bolt the crank pulley I lost a day.
IMHO if you just replace the chain (like the 14 tsb) there is no reason for the cam holders at all. They are handy for keeping them from spinning if you are replacing the phasers but certainly not necessary if you have been inside DOHC engines before.
The clamps on the turbo piping are accessible through the wheel wells, use a 8mm nut driver with extension
lightly Press in the water outlet seal to break the stiction to remove the front cover
The cam bolts are torx plus TP-55
The cam flats are 22mm, you will also need a 12" pipe on teh wrench
Replace everything the primary chain touches it will all be worn
left and right guides
idler gear (water pump part number)
