Not just because they are cheaper but because they are also quieter and have less mass, something that can be quite significant at high engine speeds. My g20 engine is MUCH noiser than my WRX engine which has a timing belt.lee756 said:Don't be so sensitive--bottom line is that maf's went to timing belts because they were cheaper---many maf's like the reliability of timing chains
Depends on the engine and it has more to do with whether the engine is designed as an interference or non-interference engine. http://www.lambsauto.com/belts.htmP10 WRC said:i wouldn't worry about it. it should never really break. yeah that is one of the only drawbacks to japanese engines is that they are close tollerance and a break in the timing belt or chain=new engine. but hey they can't be perfect.
