Default Sti Timing Belt

All,

Is the Sti timing belt a worthwhile upgrade over the standard timing belt, or are you just paying extra for the 'pink' bits?

Figure whilst my engine is getting done I would lash out!

cheers

The Sti one has more kevlar in it for less stretch....Go a Gates racing belt for the same thing but a bit cheaper.

Went to our friends at RSP Rossco, about $160.00 AUD delivered, I got 2 as shipping was the same for 2.
