timing belts on "distributorless" engines

when changing timing belts on Taco's with distributorless engines or engines with the coils over the plugs , when you change timing belts or chains , you know how you have to re-set the timing? well , my question is do you have to reset the timing and if so how? or does the ECM do it for you automatically? If you remeber on the old engines with distributors, you simply loosened the distributor and rotated it around to get the right timing. Anyone know or did it?

Certainly on at least the V6 Mike is right on. The ECU gets its timing reference from position sensors on crank and cam shafts. All you need to do is make sure camshafts are indexed correctly to the crankshaft.
