I was just starting to consider replacing my timing belt and water pump on my 1.8t. It has about 65k miles but i just wanted to be safe. I have been looking at the ECS Ultimate Timing belt Kit with the under drive pulley:
This kit put together by ECS Tuning was assembled to include everything required to perform a proper timing belt job on your 1.8T. This complete kit includes all the parts which have been known to frequently fail. Failure of any ONE of these parts will most likely damage the timing belt and result in catastrophic engine damage. Kit includes the following parts:
OEM timing belt made by Continental
OE tensioner Roller made by NTN-Japan
OEM tensioner assembly made by NTN-Japan
OE Idler roller (comes on the tensioner assembly)
Hepu water pump with metal impeller
Accessory drive belt
Thermostat (Wahler)Kit does NOT contain anti-freeze.
ECS/OEM motor mount bolt kit (4)
Cam seal (new updated PTFE seal lip design)
Seams like a pretty good deal for 400 Bucks. Anybody have any input? I wanted to get this done the same time i get the new turbo put in because Im already going to be diggin around in there so why not.
Any Info would be usefull
