Current Time Attack Champions Roger Clark Motorsport have provided the perfect solution to Impreza owners of all years looking maintain optimum performance without breaking the bank.
Their carefully selected timing belt kits use the finest OEM-quality components to replace all idlers, tensioners and belt, but at a fraction of the price of the genuine Subaru parts. This is despite, in the case of the kit shown here, the Cosworth timing belt featuring Kevlar reinforcement where the OEM belt doesn’t.
As the kits are direct service replacements for the original parts, fitting couldn’t be simpler. All parts come with entirely comparable warranties compared to the factory items and have been subjected to rigourous testing as part of RCM’s far-reaching Motorsport programme. As the engineers behind the famously reliable 890bhp 2.0 litre engine that has powered their Gobstopper race car to so many championship titles, it’s fair to say that they can sort the wheat from the chaff when it comes to sourcing componentry…
A typical example of the savings possible comes by looking at the Version 5/6/7 kits. A complete kit from Subaru would cost £704.37 + VAT with just a standard belt. The RCM equivalent, using the superior Cosworth belt and identical quality components weighs in at under half, at just £330.99 + VAT.
On launching the kits, Sales Director (and handy wheelman) Olly Clark commented, ‘We have worked very hard to source these kits from the very best suppliers in the aftermarket. Our clients are incredibly discerning when it comes to choosing engine parts, and with our typical upgrade packages hitting a reliable 5-600 BHP, we can guarantee that these parts vastly exceed all OEM parameters.’
So there you have it. Next time you’re due a timing belt service on your Subaru, check out RCM’s extensive range of kits. Astronomical performance doesn’t have to mean stratospheric pricing.
