Gates or Dayco WP kit.?
Looking around for Water pump kits since I'm over 100k now and don't want to run into any problems down the road.
Found the Dayco kit and was looking for reviews on it and didnt find to much but found some hit and misses on Gates.

Wondering if you guys got any opinions to throw out here?
Want to make sure I go the right route for this since its pretty much do or die if something happens.

Gates. The new kits have the mark on the belt which helps considerably.

The only thing I saw negative about Gates was the blue belt wear on the pulleys.
But the kit I saw had a black belt so maybe they are older belts?
Also I read some people reuse the WP gasket because the one in the kit is a some what cheap replacement?

No feedback there... you've prob done more research on that than I.
