I wouldn't wait to change the t-belt many folks on here have had the pop before 100k mi. This one on a local members we just changed not too long ago only had 60k something mi on it

So as you can see sometimes it's not good to wait. Especially on a interference motor, this is why we recommend changing it at 60-80k miles like on other manufacturer's interference motors.
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left
