the stock one really is fine, and im only saying that because there have been plenty of high hp subys using stock timing belts without problem. However the STI belt or the PE belt will install without problem and are well made belts so .. its up to you. I have a PE belt. I have heard that PE manufactures STI's belt but thats rumor i guess..

I would go with pe or greddy belt. The stock belt is ok to. They will stretch more over time though.

100% on doing the tensioner also like jays05 said. If it is a new motor i imagine you will already have new tensioner, oil pump, water pump, thermostat and gasket. If not i would replace those to if they have some miles on them.

I used a brand new stock one...basicly because I plan on replacing it whenever I pull my engine for upgrades(basicly every year)

I upgraded to an STI oil pump.... but left the stock water pump etc etc...basicly because my car only has 45k on the clock
