Yeah, all new timing belt tensioners and pullies, new cam seals, new water pump. Don't just change the belt do the other components to because its often those that actually fail when the timing belt jumps time and breaks.

I just realized yours isn't an xt, so it will sound different. Search around google a bit.

Stromung makes a great performance exhaust system, both for the turbo and non-turbo models of Forester.
