Gates Racing high performance reinforced timing belts are the only timing belts used in any RalliTEK Subaru turbo engine build!
Subaru factory service manual calls for timing belt replacement at 105,000 miles. The EJ20 and EJ25 engine featured in the Subaru WRX and STI is a full interference motor meaning that if the timing belt brakes the valves can and often will hit both the pistons and each other causing catastrophic engine damage. The easiest way to prevent this type of failure is to use a top quality timing belt like the Gates Racing belt and replace it at the designated factory service interval. On high performance motors we recommend replacing your timing belt every 80k miles to prevent issues.
Constructed of HNBR Elastomeric composites, these belts provide up to three times the heat resistance, and feature teeth reinforced with Aramid and nylon fiber to minimize wear. And Gates Racing Performance timing belts are 300% stronger than the standard aftermarket belt. The added strength gives tuners the high performance they demand. Gates is the largest producer of automotive timing belts in the world. Many of the aftermarket units that are offered from Japanese companies are manufactured by Gates and just relabeled. when installing your new set of GSC Cams its always a good idea to upgrade your Timing belt as well, look no further than a Gates Performance Timing belt kit.
