Tdc which is what you need. The crankshaft has to be at tdc as well, then you install the belt and hand rotate 3 times and verify the marks are still good.
Be carefull, if you do not install them correctly, you will bend valves.

The cam should have a key way that allows the gears to go on 1 way. Make sure the correct gear goes on the correct cam as in the picture. Do not rotate the cams with the motor at tdc as you may bend a valve.
