Every hundred thousand km. Don't risk waiting any longer either. It's very costly if it snaps. Bent valves, alsorts of problems.

MY02 Blue B4, aka 'The Project' - v8 Spec C engine package and assorted other 'goodies' - Sold, then bought back for parts. In process of stripping.

MY97 Silver RX, aka 'The Track Toy' - All good bits from B4 will find their way into this...
MY03 Holden Commodore - Daily. Because good on fuel.

I just got mine done for 100k which apparently isn't stated in the subaru log books, only 50k. But 5 years is meant to be a good interval. Mine was last changed in 2009 and the belts were starting to crack. Definitely a good idea to replace them on time

Service manual suggests every 125k for MY07ish and onwards.

 

100k is the usual mark though.

Yeah good question.

Basically anything that’s made in Japan is good kit. Anything made in China is not.

You can buy individual items from partsouq.com using your VIN. Remember those prices are in $US ;)

Which reminds me, I need to do Ruby Scoo’s cam belt... I can’t remember the last time I did it. Good thing the early ‘22 is non-interference :D

Cheers
