You definitely don't want to cheap out on the timing belt. If it fails on you, you won't be a happy camper.

For your 60k maintenance, I would suggest getting the full package (not just the timing belt). Here's a few links:

60K / 120K Packages - Maintenance - N/A DOHC - 3000GT / Stealth
Mitsubishi OEM 60K kit 91-99 6G72 DOHC (DOHC60KOEM) - Ninja Performance - Affordable Performance (or individually)

Hope that helps.

Many of the better brands belts are OK for these cars. you can find lots of threads with "acceptable" substitutes. Gates is one. I personally found a source for Continental that I think has superior quality. DONT go the kevlar route. Those belts really dont flex well and wear out all the other components. DONT skimp on the tensioner. Too many reports of failures of aftermarket ones.

Once upon a time aftermarket supplied quality as good as or better than OEM. Now its made as cheap as possible, ONLY. Quality is not a concern. Be careful what you buy.

Check your reverse sensor on the trans (if manual, not sure if there is one on the autos). Make sure its plugged in first.
