Wanted 4G63 Gates blue timing belt

Ad details

Had an unfortunate mishap that killed my timing belt, looking for another gates kevlar belt, it can be used as long as it's in good shape and not a truck load of miles.
Thank you.

Gates "blue" belts are complete trash... buy a brand new Mitsubishi Evo kevlar belt.

I did end up going with the evo 9 belt, thanks for pointing that out to me, I dont know if I'd call the gates belt trash, especially after that, I'm very thankful that belt didn't snap and ruin the engine after being cut like that
You were lucky... I cant post the pic for some reason but a gates belt just snapped in my buddys supra this week, thankfully the 2jz is not an interference engine like the 4g63. Glad you went with a mistu belt.

You should just buy a NEW timing belt. You can get the Evo Kevlar timing belt for less than $100.
All timing belts are good for 60k miles. You should change belts every 60k or sooner. The gates belt is like 60$. I have a brand new 300miles ago gates belt on and a brand new one in a box for any time I see wear or a mark I don't like. Kevlar or special adimantium or diamond you still gotta change every 60k or sooner.
Hey ho ! And what about the purple HKS timing belt? 1 year ago I had one. ( but after i replaced it.. its a long story..)
So..any infos..experience about HKS belt?
The writings on in..the letter type is very similar to Gates type belt. Hmm?
Maybe its a Gates belt too..just purple?
