RockAuto, Advance and I guess others quote an "Interference Engine" for some of the belts.

RockAuto is notorious for doing stuff like putting all the air cleaners for all the various engines or a model in each of the specific engine types so if you order from the right engine listing, you get the wrong part.

I'd like to understand what's going on so I order the right. (Could they be using a Suzuki listing which has G10 and G13 engines for that year???)

And does anyone make a superior belt? like Kevlar? maybe the experimental aviation applications?

Non interference. I can send you a video of a cut up g10 that can be rotated while watching valves. I extend the valve to the fully open position and crank the rotating assemble and you've got plenty of room before you'd have an interference(even if you managed to float a valve as your belt breaks). Once you put oversized intake and exaust with a performance ground cam it gets close but still not interference. Vitera pistons I've heard in combination with larger exaust valves and a 3tech cam create interference. I would buy the cheapo belt and replace at scheduled intervals. If you go Kevlar or some fancy thing which probably isn't in production you'd likely get your belt to outlive your idler/tensioner and if that goes before the belt it's gonna make one hell of a mess. Cheap works :mrgreen: You probably already know this but if you're replacing the belt buy the kit with the idler if that idler fails oh man :shock: .
