Default Choices for EJ207 timing belt / water pump replacement

Good afternoon, so much info out there. Just picked up A EJ207 Ver 7 from JDM Racing motors and want to change the timing belt,tensioners and water pump. What is everyone using? Is the Gates kit good? What are my options?

First page in the below thread has some great info on USDM part crossover and suggested maintenance items. Helped me out a lot when refreshing my ej207 before installing.

If you get the gates kit you may want to get an oem belt tensioner, the gates tensioner has been known to be less than reliable as of late. I had the gates kit on my ver 8 ej207 and the belt tensioner failed at 35,000 miles, belt skipped. I'm just finishing a ver 7 ej207 swap on my car, got a Subaru oem belt tensioner to go with the gates belt kit.

You can get the pump, too - just pick the one that matches the oil cooler setup you are choosing to run (or not run).

2. bolt for updated Subaru idler (V7 EJ205/207)

3. Subaru OEM water pump for EJ205

4. water pump gasket, Subaru EJ20/EJ25
