search in yahoo...like 3 or 4 sites will pop up...go to the one with the cheapest belt..i think its down to $120-$130 now? they're soo expensive cause not only are they a pretty blue color, but theyre 2.5x stronger than stock..so itll take more power and last longer over stock :) a wise investment i must say.

ok so if its supposed to last 3x longer than the stock one, then 3 stock ones would be $60. now, is the blue color worth $60? not to me

the stock one will do fine for me, that and they are supposed to last 60K miles as it is, do i need a timing belt that will last for 180K miles? no

I have a power enterprise belt, and i dont think 130 for a timing belt is a bad invesment, specially when its made out of stronger materials, like kevlar! i dont cheap out on my car, from my coilovers to my clutch(TRD Twin plate) i get the best, because i hate to have down time on my car. The more time is down, the less time i spend driving it so that is what i hate, not driving it because of some stupid mistake that i could of solved before hand.

also...the stock belt is meant for stock power...i highly doubt the stock belt will last more than 10k miles on a 500+hp motor ;) that is i hope you all are planning on not keeping your 1j's stock!!

Good belts, if you dont like paying the price dont buy one, no need to knock a superior product.

Buy it to match those trust cam gears :p

We are not "knocking" a better product... we are simply saying its a waste of money..

AMEN, put down 507 on a Izuzu belt a year ago and the car still runs strong today, But hey, its your money. Kinda like the manifold arguement, If you wanna spend the money go ahead.
