Best timing belt kit? (new member)

Recommended Posts

I used Dayco from Advance Auto Parts 2 years ago. If I did it now I would use the Gates Racing stuff from Fredbeans. Belt is 300% stronger.


I guess it should last longer...?





Ask them about the life of the Gates belt.

305,600miles 5/2012 ej257 short block, 8/2011 installed VF52 turbo, @20.8psi, 280whp, 300ftlbs. (SOLD).  CHECK your oil, these cars use it.

Fred Beans is great. They are a Subaru dealer in eastern PA. I have purchased over $3k in parts from them. I wont buy parts anywhere else. I even call them for OEM parts I can drive to a local stealership to buy. Fred Beans is nicer and much more knowledgeable than any local dealer around me.


I have the gates timing kit. I also purchased the gates racing timing belt, and the two smaller accessory belts. I sold the standard belt that comes in the timing kit and make some $$$ back. It will be getting installed in 9k miles.
