    DO NOT BUY 1 month ago
    1out of 5stars

    every single idler in the kit was off brand garbage, go anywhere else than these reviews and you'll hear horror stories of gates quality slipping. the tentioner is known to fail same with all the rollers and the water pump. I even heard one guy have his belt come with the timing marks printed in the wrong spots. its not worth wasting your money on it just to blow up your motor and cost even more money on a full rebuild

    Most items were good!! 2 years ago
    4out of 5stars

    I bought this kit for a jdm ej205 motor that im putting in a 02 wrx. Most of the idlers were good quality but gates decided to cheap out on the small idler. I bought tge racing kit in hopes of getting the best quality bearings and they were all good but that small idler. The small one says its made in korea. And its super thin walled metal. Its garbage. The old one on the car was way better quality and thicker metal. Besides that everything else was good. I highly recommend buying the cam locks if this is your first time doing this on a subaru. Thanks rallysportdirect for getting the parts to me fairly quick👍👍👍👍👍

    awesome!! 3 years ago
    5out of 5stars

    I used this pump and timing belt when replacing the head gaskets on my jdm ej205. There was one extra tube because the jdm engine does not have an oil cooler, so I simply put a short hose on it and blocked it off with a bolt and a hose clamp. Works great! It also came with a tool to slip the belt on more easily which was nice, and a little tube od licktite for the idler pulleys.

    Top Notch Quality 8 years ago
    4out of 5stars

    Ordered this kit for my JDM WRX STI. Everything is top quality. The timing belt quality is the same as other expensive aftermarket timing belt. I know some people may have some doubt on the water pump but believe me, it's a good quality water pump. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 stars is they miss 2 pieces of cam seal in the shipment as I ordered it together. Big Thumbs Up!!!

    • Q: Racing vs standard   Nelson Asay2 years ago

      So my main question is, what would be ideal or more proper? I am currently siting at 280whp/267ftq on my 03 wrx. My goAL is for power is between 330whp-350whp. Would I want this one or the standard? Thanks RSD!

        A:  The biggest difference between the kits is the material of the belt. The Kevlar reinforced belt on the Racing kit will be a bit stronger. Personally, I'd do the racing kit, but both would likely work fine for your setup.
