RCM High Grip Timing Belt Tensioner

For many years, race and rally teams have preferred to use the original 2 piece Subaru timing belt tensioner system as it is more reliable than the later single piece tensioner. However, it has a large disadvantage of not using a small idler bearing to reduce belt bounce and flex that the newer single-piece tensioner does.

Roger Clark Motorsports solution to this problem is a completely bespoke billet aluminum bracket, which utilizes the original tensioner, and incorporates the later 2002+ small idler bearing. An extremely worthwhile modification on all high revving engines, this kit is an absolute must on cars fitted with a sequential gearbox!

Founded in the early 1991 by multiple RAC winner and British Rally Champion Roger Clark MBE, Roger Clark Motorsport is one of the UK's (and for that matter, global rally's) premier motorsport and product development specialists and tuners. Roger Clark Motorsport specialize in the Impreza platform (the car-of-choice for their unparalleled Time Attack Cars Gobstopper I, Gobstopper II and soon Gobstopper III), and have passed on these high-performance components to the consumer market. We are incredibly proud to be one of the only U.S. distributors able to offer these exceptional Roger Clark Motorsports parts.

Roger Clark Motorsports has developed their High Grip Tensioner System as a solution to the problem of Timing belts bouncing and skipping teeth at high RPM, which can have catastrophic results.

For many years, race and rally teams have preferred to use the original 2 piece Subaru timing belt tensioner system as it is more reliable than the later single piece tensioner. However, it has a large disadvantage of not using a small idler bearing to reduce belt bounce and flex that the newer single-piece tensioner does.

Roger Clark Motorsports solution to this problem is a completely bespoke billet aluminum bracket, which utilizes the original tensioner, and incorporates the later 2002+ small idler bearing. An extremely worthwhile modification on all high revving engines, this kit is an absolute must on cars fitted with a sequential gearbox!

This kit is for use where the later style system is in place and will replace the whole bracket, hydraulic tensioner and tensioner bearing, along with the small idler bearing.

In short, if you are building your Subaru, and you want to make sure that you have the best timing belt tensioner available, accept no imitations or substitutions.
