Get the one with 3 pieces (tensioner, idler, belt) not 4, you don't have to have that bottom crank idler of the 4 piece kit and less to fail next time around. The plastic around the bearing will fail first and one less to worry about, that lower crank location runs hotter to fail first anyway. The difference in the belt run length is made up when you time cams with the bar, they simply time in a slightly different spot and runs fine like that.

Gates TCK294B, NOT A. Of course, you can order A and not use the fourth part, otherwise the two kits are the same. The one with more parts commonly is the cheaper one anyway. I buy it to save the extra idler for other things.
