Well, if you are going to undertake this job by yourself, be very aware that the SOHC & the DOHC engines are interference engines by design. This means that timing alignment is critical to the installation. if you experience no compression readings or even try to crank that engine over, it will do damage to the valve train or the piston surfaces themselves. also note that if the engine experienced the failure of the timing belt while running, it is important to check the valve train components
