    Default GSi cambelt service - what do I need?

    I want to get the bits together to do a timing belt service on the GSi. What I'd like to know is:

    1. Exactly what parts will I need? As far as I know, I need a timing belt kit, a water pump is wise and some coolant. Anything else? Are there any O-rings, gaskets or what have you that I need to order separately?

    2. Where is a good place to get these items for a reasonable price?

    Many thanks in anticipation.

    Paul

    you'll only need to add a locking kit to that... to lock the 4 camshaft pulleys and the crank..

    check that the waterpump came with an o ring.....and that you have some automotive silicone sealant as you'll want to be the WP o ring in with a smear of it..
