Well, I set it for noon ... so you should be able to hang.

But I think if you have to work at 530, we should pick a different day to do your timing.

my car is 95k... so after reading so many stories of those belts giving up in early 90k's I prefer to get to work late, but have this belt done, I really want to have this car for years to come. If I wanted low-maintenance car I would get me a Corolla or Civic of recent year :P

my belt lasted (i think) thru 115k... now, i am not saying your's will. but i have read where some people's lasted through 125k, it all depends on the shape of the tensioner.
i completely understand wanting to get it done asap. i don't blame ya. Better safe than sorry.

Hey SvviftSVT I already talked to tukani about my belt im going to buy beer and were going to get together and do it, right now the belt has 87,000 on it and i pulled the cover off and tensioner is mad strong and no cracks in the belt....im trying to push it to 100k, Im glad to hear yours lasted to 115k and someone else to 125k cause all ive been hearing over on focal j is 70k, 80k BOOM.... but mine seems to be in really good shape....Im just trying to set a date and work around my free time I just got a new job and looks like im going to have to pull some 24 hour shifts.

I cant make it to this meet guys, Sunday is my girls day and church make it for Saturdays if ya could, I will be at SVT vs the world though and my buddy in the lightning is going too soooooooo that brings on my next question are us SVT guys getting together to roll up to SVT vs the world together?
