Short description:

gatT131RB - Gates Racing M20 Timing Belt


Gates Racing High Performance Timing Belts are incredibly strong, extremely heat resistant. Tough enough to take the worst pummeling your engine can dish out. No other belts help protect your engine and deliver high performance like Gates Racing High Performance Timing Belts.

Yes, the blue color gives you a hot custom look. But look deeper.

Timing belts are toothed drive belts that transmit rotational force from the crankshaft to the camshaft. Unlike standard accessory belts, they also synchronize valve opening to firing order and crankshaft angle during combustion strokes. A broken timing belt can cause catastrophic damage in some engines; periodic belt replacement is recommended to avoid costly repairs.

This blue kevlar timing belt from Gates Performance is constructed of HNBR elastomeric composites. That being said, they are 300% stronger than the OE belt & deliver up to three times the heat resistance. Don't take any chances with your engine, replace your timing belt today!

You can count on them to hold up to the rigors of high horsepower, even with interference engines.

Gates Racing Timing Belt Features:

(1) Wear Resistant Teeth. High saturation HNBR elastomeric composites contribute to the exceptional durability and heat resistance with aramid reinforcement.

(2) Robust Reinforced Tooth Jacket. Durable nylon fiber provides extra wear resistance, doubling tooth strength.

(3) Super Strong Tensile Cord. Added strength comes from premium, high-strength glass cords.
