Subaru recommends replacing the timming belt every 105K under normal driving conditions. You guys would know that if you looked at your owners manual.

105k is the recommended service timing belt replacement on all 02' and up vehicles except 3.0l cars. If the car is used aggressively it should be replaced at 90k.

ARGH... I'd hate to say this but seriously how can you guys post that and not expect to get crap from members. Its bad information.

Tensioner can be reused as long as the cylinder is not leaking fluid. It must be compressed slowly(hours) and under xx lbs of compression force.

I also dont see why you would need a water pump at 60k its a metal impelar not a plastic one.

I think Darius made the mistake of copying the technical info from our post on EvoM. I'll inform him of his slip-up.

That is correct. Sorry about that guys and thanks for catching that mistake. I just fixed it to 105k. The manual does say at 105k it should be replaced but it also does say to inspect or replace at 30/60/90k.


Even though it does say 105k, I would still recommend doing it before or at a very least having it checked for a piece of mind (like the manual says at 30/60/90k). Especially if your vehicle is even slightly modified.


Regards,
Darius

You can recompress the tensioner over a couple of minutes, just have to do it very slowly. You're correct that there is a specific pressure you're only supposed to use to recompress it, mainly so that it doesn't overpressurize and blow out the seals.

The water pumps need to be replaced due to seals and bearings, not for the turbines specifically.

Don't be too afraid of the tensioner. You're supposed to compress it during the course of "more than three minutes" and use no more than 2,205 pounds of pressure.
