Default New PT Crusier owner requesting timing belt info.

I am new to the forum and I have just purchased a 2004 PT Crusier Touring Turbo for my daughter. New driver. It has 106,000 miles on it and has not had the timing belt changed. I am a industrial electrician/mechanic. I am confident that I can do it myself and save some of the $1200 that I was quoted to do the job by the dealer. I have searched this forum and read many a post on the steps needed and some hints and tips. Most of what I have read is for the 2.4L without the turbo.

What are the differences with the turbo?
What special tools will I need to do the job?

Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Thanks Hooligan! I have been looking and looking. I have been over the how to's. One main question I need help with is what specialty tools do I need to do the job and is there an online source for the tools?

From all the how to's I can list some of them.

T55 socket
Cam sprocket holder (best one?)
Harmonic Balancer puller (best one?)

Since I will be there anyways I wanted to change the cam and crankshaft seals. I am having a difficult time finding instructions on how to change them. specifically what tools will be needed to put the new ones on?

I am planning on doing the job in two weeks and need to start ordering what I need as soon as possible.

Any help from those that have done this job would be greatly appreciated.
