    I would buy the Gates timing belt kit and then have the mechanic perform the install. You'll save yourself a few hundred $$

    This means the noise was NOT the motor and NOT the bottom end? I'd have to assume so, since it makes no sense to replace the belt on a bad motor. If it's not the motor, this is very good news!

    Fixed. Idler crank pulley bearings busted out upon removal; god I was lucky. Band new timing belt kit. Runs like a breath of fresh air.
