big job take like 5 days to do it. there is timing marks on the cams so very easy, you will be able to do it without special tools. you will need to remove the engine. I dont recommend to any body to replace the engine if you only have a timing chain guide or tensioner problem, this is a very common problem of this engine, better to fix it you put a new timing kit and you can put more 100k miles in the car.

The timing chain should last the life of the engine and not maintenance is normally required. It is replaced when the engine is rebuilt.
does it make noise? check http://forums.nicoclub.com/
Mustang's have timing chains not belts and do not have interference engines. Change the timing chain when it brakes or stretches to the point it throws off your valve timing.
The 3.8L engine has a timing chain.
It's not a regular maintenance item like a timing belt is I'm not a mechanic / technician but if you are having the engine rebuilt you would want to change the timing chain and gears Also , if the timing chain was causing some kind of problem
There is no timing belt. There is timing chain. You do not need to ever change it, they last. Except if you change smtg else around, like water pump.
