gates timing components
« on: March 02, 2012, 07:54:54 PM »
im going to be doing a timing belt on my 2002 wrx and i can find kits all over the internet. on jscspeed.com there is a complete gates kit (belt, tensioner, 4 idler pulleys, and water pump) it says oem, and up to oem quality standards. can any subaru tech tell me if subaru actually use gates products as oem timing components? has anyone used this kit or any of these gates parts? if so what has your experience been like with them? ive searched all over the internet for this answer, no dice. thanks all!

I'm no tech, but I am pretty sure that Gates is OEM quality.

At least I think I read that on NASIOC a while back.

I got the Gates timing kit when it was time to put a new engine in my 02.  Their stuff was on point.  Id run it again.

I believe the Subaru Jesus used gates for my timing belt replacement also.  Good stuff.
