The aircabinman OEM kit just came in. It looks pretty much as described for the most part. The camshaft seals come in an unmarked bag as noted in the item description - water pump gasket and thermo gasket were unmarked as well (Aisin). The A/C belt came marked bando/denso/made in USA, the PS belt was marked mitsuboshi, and the alternator belt was marked Toyota. The rest of it was just as described. Thanks for all the tips. Now to attempt an install.

On their website, you can find discount coupons almost for each website available on the internet. Check it out by yourself.

You suck.

Thanks!
just to add to the others,

When I did mine like 4-5 years ago, I got it on ebay and just searched for a very highly reviewed seller, with top credentials, and that toyota OEM kit was for sure not the cheapest but a good price. I obviously don't even remember who it was.

When the kit arrived, it was as on the seller'S description, all toyota OEM parts, and that kit is installed and now near the end of it's recommended maintenance of 100K miles end of life, no problem. Will do the same this winter/spring when I replace it again.

I'm all about saving money... but there HAS to be a reason the same parts from Toyota are $700 and the kit from Ebay is $300.

Question.. if you don't have the Know how, room, proper tools to do this job and you go to a dealer( or an indie shop) with your box of Ebay Goodies will they do the Job? or send you packing? Obviously there wont be a warrantee on the parts.

Ok fine...
Knowing me I'd be the one to click on it. My AV is pretty good so i think it would warn me when i do something stupid.

I purchased a timing belt kit for my V8 on eBay from jdmpartsman714. You get, for $446.20 including shipping:

AISIN WATER PUMP w/GASKET WPT800
KP WATER OUTLET GASKET 16341-50020
AISIN/ FOR TOYOTA SILICONE GLUE SEALANT
MITSUBOSHI TIMING BELT TB298
KOYO TENSIONER 13505-50030
KOYO IDLER TENSIONER 13503-50011
NTN HYDRAULIC TENSIONER 13540-50030
THO 2 CAMSHAFT SEALS 90311-38065
THO CRANKSHAFT SEAL 90311 - 43006/ 90311-A0001
BANDO/MITSUBOSHI SERPENTINE/DRIVE BELT 6PK2240
TAMA NTCL THERMOSTAT 90916-03100/ WV64TA-82A
THO THERMOSTAT GASKET 16346-50010
TOYOTA GENUINE COOLANT
GATES UPPER HOSE 22831
GATES LOWER HOSE 22832

I received this stuff and delivered it to my mechanic and he was pretty stunned at the quality of the parts in the kit. It even includes bolts. He charged me $403.73 to install all this stuff. Seems to work perfectly so far. The car has 109k miles and as such was clearly overdue for its first belt change.

I have used 3 of aircabinman oem kits with no issue. They are actual oem parts or oem mfg parts depending in the kit you get. As far as I know they are the best kits out three.
