Stage 1 = 15Nm
Stage 2 = 40Nm
Stage 3 = Plus 90 degrees or quarter of a turn. Good tip is to mark all the bolts after initial torque setting with tip-ex , i.e. all to the front of the car. When you finish they should all point towards the timing belt.
This is also a good way to make sure you don't miss one or tighten one twice if you are distracted since it is not a torque setting. New bolts should be used by the way as they are stretch bolts. Timing of cams - remove cam cover and you will see a slot on the end of the cams. Opposite end from belt. You need to slip a piece of 5mm flat bar or a long 5mm allen key into then so that the bar rests on the face of the head. Engine should be a tdc.

public library...Chilton or Haynes auto repair manuals or collisionrepairadvice.com
Also, this a a good opportunity to change the timing belt and the drive belts.

It could be either. The way that you can tell is to open the hood and look at the engine. If it is a dual overhead cam it will say 16 valve or Dual overhead cam. If not then it is just a single.
