    Any downsides to these, besides cost. Any slippage stories or anything.

    what kind of power are you putting out
    what kind of RPMs are you running

    the stock honda belt is good enough untill you are heavily modded

    Ok, here goes. This info is from Clubsi.com and I just copied and pasted different shit ok.....hope this helps

    Info on Toda Belt:
    I was just reading an article in honda tuning where they replaced a broken timing belt with a Toda one that cost $180. Now Toda claims the belt to be 200% stronger than the factory belt and keep timing truer at high rpm's but $180? The factory belt's are like $25 or so right? Does anyone have this belt or know anyone who does and is it worth that
    -
    IIRC, leo (itrownzjoo) said the Toda belt is nothing more than a Power Enterprise belt colored red rather than blue.



    Info on Power Enterprise Belt:
    IIRC, leo (itrownzjoo) said the Toda belt is nothing more than a Power Enterprise belt colored red rather than blue.

    I’m using the PE belt and so far so good. The thing is strong!!! You can tell by just looking at it.
    -
    If you are running big cams, get a PE belt from Leo.
    -
    Agree with Scott. If you are using wild cams, use PE. I used to sell them, they are really good belts.
    -
    I got my PE belt from leo( www.jdmspecperf.com ). and it's useless. It's sits in box, in a bigger box, with other boxes, in my room. Useles....

    PE= Power Enterprise


    Info on Gatorback:
    get the Gatorback belts from Autozone, better than stock, cheaper than PE or Toda belts
    -
    Gatorback belt is not a bad belt but for big cams I don’t think it will hold up any better then a stock one. I used one for a summer and it did have sings of wear.


    Info on OEM belt:
    Stock is $60


    Hope this helps some.

    the PE belt is only $15 less ($165) so i guess it pretty much comes down to what color you like better ;)
