Rb25det Timing Kits


Recommended Posts

Hi guys/girls, kinda new to the forum, I've stalked a lot but that's about it haha.

Question is what timing belt kits have you run, any bad/good experiences and what brands, I'm due for a timing belt kit and water pump, my pump will be genuine but when it comes to the kit I'm not sure which to go, there a few brands out there, found kudosmotorsport.com gives u a few options of belt brands. My car is a street/drift car mainly, comes out to play once a month of money allows but gets driven most weekends to the shops and maybe to race track to spectate, qld laws are making me scared to drive it hahah

I run a Gates racing belt with no problems. Some people find they are noisey but they may be over tensioned

Kudos offer Greddy as well i think which i havent heard anything bad about. Id probably go Nismo if i had to choose but the gates belt came in the kit i got so went with that

Yeah I've found mine is fine. People probably hold the tensioner tight as they do the bolt up, where as all you actually need to do is wind the engine over (backwards or forwards, cant remember) a few times then change direction, hold the tensioner at that point as you do it up. The small hex in the tensioner isnt for doing the belt tight, just for holding the tension.

Mine hasn't snapped, slipped or made any noise so must be alright. I have the procedure here somewhere anyway. that was just off the top of my head
