355 Major Service Engine Out

So my car has 13,400 miles. It has had 2 engine outs due to time with the last being in 09 and 3000 miles ago. Here is a picture of the belt we just replaced! Ughhh! What a waste! Already had the Hill Engineering bearings too.

The belt was a 07 belt so itnwas effectively almost 8 years old.

They are never needed until they break, sort of like life insurance.

Exactly what Taz said, although I think we could go 7 or 8 years w/o issue.

My timing was also spot on which I heard rarely ever changes from factory and not sure why it would anyhow.

Any noticeable difference driving? Smoother? Faster? Placebo effect?

Not mocking...I'm one of those guys who thinks the car (any car) runs better after I change the oil or wash it lol.

Thats funny, i feel the same. It feels smoother for sure. Not sure if that has anything to do with plugs or its just in my head.
