60k / 120k Maintenance
This page will have more information soon, but in the meantime I'm just going to paste the list of acceptable timing components in here that I've been copy/pasting into the Facebook groups for the last 3 months.
If you need a reference in the meantime, check out this writeup on the 3S wiki.
Acceptable Timing Belts
- Mitsuboshi [CD195]
- Continental ContiTech [TB195]
- OEM [MD193874]
- Gates [T195]
- Gates Racing [T195RB]
Acceptable Timing Belt Tensioners
- OEM Hydraulic [MD319040] (Washer Mod for Safety)
- Aftermarket Solid (NinjaPerformance, IMR, 3SX)
Acceptable Water Pumps
- OEM [MD972005]
- Aisin [WPM030]
- Continental ContiTech [Part of TB195LK1]
- Hitachi [WUP0023]
I personally recommend the ContiTech TB195 kit, as it comes with everything needed except a timing belt tensioner (saving you ~$100 on one you wont use as with the Gates kit), allowing you to buy either an OEM hydraulic tensioner or a solid one.
I recommend solid tensioners for those who are very mechanically inclined and would rather have the responsiblity to maintain their belt tension on them than on a hydraulic tensioner. I recommend OEM hydraulic for everyone else.
