Good info, but is the black belt supposed to be tougher than stock? I checked the corksports site, but I could only find the info about the black belt just the blue one.tturnpaw said:Yes there are different kinds. The black gates is a composite/rubber material vs the blue being (as taken from corksports website) "Constructed of HNBR elastomeric composites, Gates Racing Performance Timing Belts are 300% stronger than stock belts and deliver up to three times the heat resistance."
However, gates in itself is a good quality part. If there is nothing wrong with the belt, no sense replacing it, but im always skeptical when it comes to timing belts and wear and tear. Our engines arent interference from the factory so its up to you.
One step closer! Thanks.Onegimp said:http://lmgtfy.com/?q=gates+timing+belt+
