    Default What do you guys think of this timing belt kit?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2-0-2...item336744a38c

    Thoughts? Looks pretty decent quality, most of the stuff is made in Japan. I've never heard of Mitsuboshi.

    I also saw these ones while looking around.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/TOYOT...item2a131e245e (This one seems like it has more stuff, this is my first timing belt replacement, so for simplicity should I just get all my parts in one go and buy this one?)


    Recommendations?

    I donno man. I prefer to get timing belts from a parts store so I can look at it before I buy it, and most have a warrenty for faulty parts.

    I would recommend genuine Toyota parts.

    After doing a bit more research, it turns out that Nitoma is actually a distributor. They distribute brand name parts in kits. Might go with this just to try it out.

    If this was a Honda or Mitsubishi, I would only recomend OEM parts. but the worst thing that can happen on the engines in our cars is the belt fails, and you have to do it over.

    My sentiments exactly. Also, my perspective on this is I plan on changing the belt every 70,000 miles anyway and in a lot of cases belts will last 90,000 - 100,000 miles on small engines because they aren't under a whole lot of duress. I figure if this was a 3S-GTE that was driven constantly at higher RPMs I would NEED the more expensive belt/pump kit but since it's just a NA 5SFE I should be okay for 60,000 - 70,000 on a cheap one.

    Does this sound reasonable or am I making a big mistake?

    FYI, Mitsuboshi is an OEM belt vendor to Toyota for serpentine belts for my 7th gen. Ive gotten a Dayco and a Mitsuboshi both from a Toyota dealer.

    This thread is gayer than Richard Simmons singing a duet with Elton John in a bath house.
