You can do it with the engine in the car. Buy a Haynes or other manual.
The belt has to be put on correctly or you can bend the valves. The manual has pictures so you don't make a mistake. Allow around four hours depending on how much experience you have. Tools needed a 3/8 inch socket set, harmonic balancer puller. A 1/2 inch breaker bar and nut for the harmonic balancer bolt. A big screwdriver to hold the flywheel so you can remove the harmonic balancer bolt. You may need a 1/4 inch drive socket set. Also a an engine hoist or floor jack to support the engine while you remove the front mount.
