Gents, does anyone know if the Cam belts for the Aus spec STi models are the same lengths as the AVCS models from Japan? Don't want to get a timing belt kit to suit the 00 to 07 local STi if it's not going to suit the single AVCS Jap spec STi engine I have. Rather not throw money down the drain. I'd get something like this through Partsouq if I had the Vin written down from the donor car, but alas, I wasn't thinking like this when I originally got the engine put in.

Any assistance would be awesome, I do know this is a fairly specific question.

Cheers,
Ben

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

MY97 Silver RX, aka 'The Track Toy' - All good bits from B4 will *eventually* find their way into this...
MY03 Blue RX, the new daily, pretty well more B4 than RX now...

Is there any way you could search a vin from a suitable car?

If I told you I was a compulsive liar, would you believe me?

Last time I went searching for a VIN it took me days to find one. Chassis codes don't seem to be an issue to find but VINs are a little more elusive. Really should have written it down in a safer spot. My concern is that the cam gear is a larger diameter in the AVCS motors to account for the respective mechanicals, which should in theory make the belts longer to account for it.

I guess that some would consider me being after some spoon feeding, but I really don't want to spend the rest of my weekend looking for a VIN number.

I found one but won’t drop it on here. Search for a 2006 model in Vic. With several of the pics you can work around the blurring of the number plate to do a rego check ;)

Cam belt part number for a 2006 STi Impreza (partsouq doesn’t show the STi description bit - definitely an STi though):
13028AA240 - currently out of stock.

Theres a 2005 STi on gumtree in WA with the VIN listed. It runs a different cam belt: 13028AA200 - currently out of stock. The 240 part number above is listed as a substitute.

This one is listed as a 2L. I cant remember if the one above in the previous post was a 2L or 2.5L.

Cheers

All AUDM GD STi are single AVCS so that wont be an issue at all.
