take in to consideration of a timing belt kit (including tensioner) and also possibility of changing the water pump and thermostat especially if its the 8v engine i would highly recommend changing all those above, may cost a bit more but saves doing the whole lot again if something goes wrong.

Agree totally, would be seriously mental not to, but the 8V is easy to do the belt on, maybe get a mate to help you do yourself ?
