How do I set the timing on a 2000 GT

Well guys i have really done it this time. I was replacing a tensioner (right side/ Passenger) and in the process the cam shaft turned. I have an idea of where it was, but not 100% sure. I have searched all data diy, but I do not under stand it completely. I have a pic I took just to remember this but its not the best. (the pic is before anything moved).

as I was putting the screws back in the tensioner i dropped the half inch drive and short extension in the oil pan. spent 2 hours trying to get it out. destroyed the telescopic magnet, and now I have a piece of that stuck in the oil pan. this two day project turned into a nightmare.

That will be ok if they are factory cams but if all else fails look up how to degree the cams on google or youtube. As far as advancing or retarding the timing once they are properly degreed, that's all done electronically in the computer.
