Hi can anyone advise a supplier for a timing kit for a Series 1 EJ20GDW1BJ engine code?

Many thanks

I just use the cheap aftermarket kits. These engines are non-interference, easy to work on and the belt pretty much always outlasts the idlers in my experience. I don't see the need to spend 3x as much for peace of mind considering how small the potential inconvenience is.
'93, '93 and '94 Legacy L, wagons, FWD and AWD, all are NA 2.2 w/ 4EAT.

Older post, but everything I've read is that the EJ25D kits will work on the EJ20G.

And as the EJ20G is a DOHC interference, the valves can interfere.

There's also a thread on here devoted to the differences. It's ancient but may be useful: viewtopic.php?t=38247
