You will need the GM V6 locking timing kit, cannot do without whatever people may say.

A good selection of torx sockets will be essential as well.

Other than that, its straightforward enough, just take your time.

Autovaux - http://www.autovaux.co.uk hire out the locking kit - 100 deposit and 15 a week hire fee.

I'd say the DVD is a must have - I followed it religiously on my 2.6 and i managed the job fine, having never done it before.

You say 'apart from spanners, sockets, etc' - a 30mm swan neck spanneris preferred too. Adjusting the tensioners without one (i.e. with a 30mm socket instead) is a bit fiddly.
