?? I would rather have a chain -- last more than 100K normally. Belts have to be replaced 40-60K usually. I've seen far more engine problems due to belts jumping Vs Chains.

I think what he is trying to say is that a modern engine using a belt is very unlikey.

Current Mods: Eibach Pro-kit springs and anti-roll kit, KYB Excell-G struts and shocks, Moog sway links, Prothane Front Control Arm Bushings (coming soon)
