Sounds almost like what happened to me, but my timing belt was perfectly fine, i dropped a valve instead.

what kind of belt were you running? and were you 100% that you adjusted all the slack out prior to timing it?

Personally i would use Gates over anything out there.

this will help when you go back together as well.

I prefer the Gates racing belt as well. Next choice would be a genuine Mitsubishi belt. Did you replace the timing belt pulleys and tensioner?
