SBK86 I also got the Gates TCK294B kit and Motorcraft water pump PW368 but off Amazon actually. I usually shop at RockAuto but Amazon had a better price at the time.

For drive belt, I bought at the dealer cause I noticed the previous owner put the wrong size drive belt on which created too much tension so had to do an emergency run to replace that and the tensioner pulley which broke.

I've had all these parts for about a year and had no issues.

djohn I agree with everything said above except for one item. I have always used, and have had no issue with a Goodyear Gatorback serpentine belt. Guaranteed not to squeal, chirp, or squeak. And they are lifetime replacement. Later.

tukaniSVT I agree 100% to the Gates Belts' suggestions as well.

redSVT_03 My uncle used to own a few napas around me. He sold them off though lol but I would think the part numbers should be the same at least. Rockauto just always seems to have the best prices

Richie Rich Thanks. I get most of my stuff thru Napa. Got a good friend that runs one close to me and keeps me hooked up.

Best timing belt, tensioner, pulleys for replacement

I have a 2002 that has a 2004 SVT zetec. I use this for a track car. I need to get some opinions on best brand for timing belt, tensioner, and pulleys. I am fixing to send this over to my local garage for its winter update and these along with a water pump are top priority.
Next I will be adding an additional power steering cooler. Temps get up to around 200 degrees doing track days/racing.
