    Ok so I'm changing the belt on my 2004 sti and I'm not using the oem belt I'm using a gates racing belt.should I use the 1mm that subaru recommends or should I just use the little gap spacer that comes with the kit for all four of the blet guides?the reason I'm doing all the blet guide is because I want to be sure there all to spec.

    that spacer is for the cam belt guide at the crank gear, not sure if the gap is the same for the cam gears.

    I know that but I wanted to know if I should use the 1mm that the repair manual said to use or that thing for the belt?i might use the 1mm but I wanted to see what other people thought.
