I'm at around 89k and have so far installed a new clutch, new front rotors/pads, plugs, thermostat and have sitting in my room a new timing belt and motor mount, and on order.. a new serpentine belt, pulley, wires and clutch master cylinder.


Coming soon I'm doing the rear rotors/pads, the thermostat housing, and intake gasket since I had a little oil in my plugs :(

Still runs like a champ.. All that's wrong with it so far are things that just go on cars, and preventative maintenance things that need to be addressed in any car. Though I'm under suspicion that my brake/clutch fluid housing thingy (I'm retarded right now) is leaking :(

Totally unnecessary. I did mine at 99K and it 'looked' fine. Seriously, there's no need to do it so soon.

I'm at 138,749 as of tonight..yikes!

I'm at 127,000. I changed my belt at 110k later than most. Looked like new still. I put cheapo brakes on the back, and have centric rotors/ebc green stuff pads for the front in the mail. Going to drive it until I decide what to buy.

Tell that to people who've had their tensioner or idler pulley fail at 50 or 60k miles (didn't happen to me). It's not the belt that fails. If there were higher quality tensioners/idlers, we could wait that long *safely*. Waiting until 100k is tempting fate. Almost 92k miles for me on 3rd timing belt (replaced everything when I got it from my friend).
