The quickest, is just to disconnect the intake mani, and exhaust n let it sit there. You can slip off the timing belt, but you still have to dis-assemble the bottom part to change it (which you should do).

Shouldn't be too hard.

Yea the head bolts are the only ones you need to be concerned about.

TDC is nothing to be freaked out about, just make sure the notches align and you're golden.
