Default 2000 GC8 Timing belt kit

So p-wrx it is time to do the timing belt on the white GC8 in the family.

VIN: JF1GC8KD3YG

I intend to to do the water pump at the same time, will this kit fit?

02 05 2 0L EJ20T Subaru WRX Turbo Dohc Timing Belt KIT GMB Water Pump | eBay

Or is there a better option?

This has been covered before. But if it was my car, i would only use genuine cam and crank seals, the rest you can go gates.

Tristan,
speak to Rhys at city Subaru, they do a pretty good genuine kit and prices of water pumps
have come down a fair bit as well

City Subaru should also provide the kit at trade as per our discounting agreement with them.
