    Timing Belt

    So I'm going to be replacing my timing belt on my 02 WRX wagon in a couple weeks. I'm looking for something aftermarket that is a little stronger, wondering what anybody's would recommend. Thanks!

    Welcome... I was just in littletown today...

    Just stick with the stock belt. No reason to change it IMO.

    The service interval is 105,000 mi. What service interval are you interested in achieving with a stronger belt?

    All of the "Stronger" timing belts have shorter service intervals. Normally around 60,000 miles.

    The stock one holds up great. Use that.

    Here's another thread discussing this.
