Timing Belt Subaru Baja Turbo

Post by BlueBaja05 » Tue Jul 16, 2019 8:08 am

I have recently acquired a 05 Subaru Baja Turbo with 180K mile and unknown history of Timing belt. I will probably replace soon, but curious if a belt with subaru red lettering was original, or possibly a replacement belt ?

Thanks,
Brian

Mine had the same belt as yours when i got it at 164k miles. The belt was very, very worn but one of the roller bearings had exploded! I'm 99% sure the timing cover had never come off.
