Be sure to visit RalliTEK for all your Subaru service and maintenance needs!
The 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.
The Gates Racing timing and accessory belts are the highest quality, longest lasting belts we have had our hands on which is why they are what we put inside EVERY Subaru motor we assemble. The component kits offer considerable cost savings over factory service parts without sacrificing quality or reliability. The water pump kit will keep that all important coolant flowing for years to come.
We keep dozens of belts and kits for all your needs whether it be mail-order, in store pickup, or in house installation we have you covered!
