    mention whether it makes a diff as to how much power you are making, personally I have a NA b16 and will be keeping it that way, but hope to get up to 180-200hp at the wheels some day

    At those power levels I would just sticke to OEM. If you really have the extra money to blow spend it on something else than a toda timing belt.

    power isn't really the factor... its rev's.

    under 9500, stick with oem
    over, go with the toda

    Brian is right, it has nothing to do with horsepower, but with rpms. But I heard if you were revving past 8500 it was good idea. Fuck, anything that is looked at as "insurance" for my motor, is a good idea in my book. When you spend 3 to 5 thousand on your motor, what's a hundred bux to make sure your timing belt doesn't slip?
