Not just the timing belt but the timing belt assembly (belt,idler pulley,tensioner pulley,valve cover gasket needed as well during this). The pulleys are just as important as the belt as they tend to fail and lead to belt failure from what I've read. Some people also replace the water pump while doing this as well but I've read as long as you aren't having issues with it then it isn't a have to item.
