    Ditch the Toda timing belt for a OEM one and put your money towards ITB's

    stick with a 64mm TB, I would personally swap over the bottomend from an R, so you have higher compression, reliablity and also 1.8 liters.


    factory belt is fine,

    get a better header than DC, such as the oem ITR 4-1, hytech, smsp, toda, etc..

    7.5lb flywheel is fine,

    If you like power then you don't like dc. You could also get a Power Enterprises timing belt besides the toda one. also for a header: headertech, an-r and dtr. All comparable to smsp and hytech but for less money. For some good reviews on power products go to importreview.com

    somewhere online was a TB comparison of the standard ITR TB and an 68/70mm...

    the larger TB only produced 1WHP on the top end, other than that they were the same.


    as long as you upgrade to either a new oem timing belt or toda/pe, or whatever you should be fine.
