    Looking for advice on who makes a good timing belt kit. Including a new water pump. Or should I spend the extra money and stay with original Toyota parts? Thanks in advance.

    Aisin kits can be found on Amazon for $150+\-. It’s where I got mine and my mechanic thanked me for going OEM since it had all the markings he needed.

    There really is no other choice. Aisin is the choice of true Toyota enthusiasts...

    Who'd you take it to? I'm having a hard time finding local people who will let my supply my own parts.

    I should just get over my fear and do it myself, but I just can't get there.

    It is an involved procedure for sure. Find a competent wrenching buddy and team up on it. Get the FSM and or a Haynes manual and Git R Dun!

    I’ve worked at a few repair shops and dealers and always saved the numbers of the good mechanics. Most of them will do side work for cash so that’s what I did. He is the head shop foreman of a BMW dealer so I knew my truck was in good hands.

    Do not believe this came with the kit I installed.

    Guess I'm rolling an OG tensioner. Great. Something else to silently obsess over until I change it.
