I'd do the same for the water pump if you can swing it. I know OE parts from the stealership are expensive but look at the fact that the OE pump has made it this long...it's one of those parts you don't want to have to replace again for the labor alone...

There are kits sold by turninconcepts that look sufficient and have good reviews. It just depends on your goals...
I'm actually looking at Gates OE Grade Kit, not the blue belt one. It's $200 for the whole kit and kaboodle, which is what I need! I'm not planning to build this car up at all. Modding the EJ251 in it would be a bit pointless.
