I just pulled the top cover and looked at my timing belt today. It says Toyota on it, it really looks nice, no cracking, checking, splitting, etc, rubber soft, teeth look good. 2002 with 99,000 miles, I bought it at 59,000 in 2014, no service records, could be the original belt.

Anyway, much as I would love to say looks good and keep driving it for another 5 years, I think it is time to swap it out. I know they say it is not just the mileage it is the age, so my question is, should I be worried about maybe getting an old kit the has been sitting on a shelf for 15 years as far as the belt goes?

the ones sitting aren't exposed to any elements (at least shouldn't mine was sealed in a bag) and no exposure to heat. I've done 4 track days since changing it and it still looks new too
