I have 272's and now my motor is an interference motor. Do they make any stonger timing belts than toyota one? I don't want to worry about it slipping or breaking. Anyone else have this problem or is it the pistons I have. They are JE pistons.

The Greddy Blue Strong timing belt is the one I use and is the way to go if you want a stronger one. -B

Yep, Derek it's interference already.
The greddy blue is supposed to last longer.

As they already mentioned.

BTW, the stock IS motor is interference already

with GTE pistons, i dont think its an interference engine as long as u stick with stock or 264's. 272's will hit...... im not sure about the JE's though

If you have the GTE piston and 272 your motor is not interference. The valve cuts actually eliminate this. We have seen GTE short block and 272 cams broke the t-betl. No problem.

Most big power cars are running the STOCK timing belt, the greddy is not necessary.

Are you guys sure the GE motor is interference?

Just a fyi on the gte motor if you have hks 264 or 272 cams the engine is NOT interference but with jun cams it is..HKS cams are 9mm of lift vs jun which is 10mm lift, 10 or more and it will make the motor interference.
