    I'm looking for a reliable Timing Belt kit with water pump, tensioners, seals, gaskets and the work. On a budget. Do I need to shell out big bucks for box store parts or is there cheaper, reliable aftermarket somewhere? Thoughts on Aisin?

    This is the kit I was looking at on Amazon. I believe it's evergreen

    The water pump Aisin sells outside of TOYOTA will have the TOYOTA name ground off the housing. Supposed to be the same pump. Looked identical to me when I compared them. Came in the AISIN blue box.
