does the 5gen gts have a tension spring around the timing belt? because every mechanic i have talked to said i have to take the timing belt off to do a head gasket and people on here say i dont need to so this will help me decide

to do the head gasket? You sure are going to have to remove the timing belt considering the cam shaft is IN the cylinder head. But to answer your question, yes, there is a spring loaded tensioner for the timing belt on the 5S
