GNP's Timing Belt Guide has been designed to be wider and stronger than the stock Subaru piece, while keeping the proper tolerance to ensure smooth timing belt operations at all times. On manual transmission EJs, sudden changes in engine speed and rapid deceleration/engine braking can cause the timing belt to skip, which at best results in a poorly running engine, or at worst, mechanical failure when pistons meet valves. Most factory manual transmission EJs are equipped with timing belt guides from factory, however they're usually quite flimsy and jagged, which may also cause the belt to shred. GNP has engineered this piece with radiused edges, abd added length and width to allow for more coverage of the timing belt, but is also hard-anodized it to provide the smoothest surface possible should the timing belt contact it.
Strongly recommended for any manual transmission application that sees hard driving conditions. This can absolutely be used on the street, but is especially beneficial on the track.
Timing Belt guides are made from CNC billet 6061 T6 aluminum and is hard anodized.
This part is a direct replacement for the stock flimsy piece, and can be added to just about any DOHC Subaru 2002 and newer. Because you want to protect your investment while enjoying it to it's fullest.
