Hey Javier,
Send me your address in a PM and I'll ship it your way.

No I did not set it to TDC before disassembly although I wish I would have thought about that, it may have made my job easier. You may consider a new upper intake gasket as it is a flattened metal gasket with ridges that get crushed down when you torque the upper intake.

The engine will be fine as the 3.0L SOHC is not an interference engine so I wouldn't worry about keeping the timing belt aligned. Of course it's critical during reassembly, but I wouldn't sweat it during disassembly.

I'll wait to hear back from you about the tool bro.
