Question Need Advice for Timing Belt Replacement

I would like to plan on doing a timing belt replacement and advice.
Is there anything else that I should replace when doing the timing belt?

MD352473 Balance Belt Tensioner/Pulley
MR984375 Timing Belt Hydraulic Tensioner
MD369999 Timing Belt Idler Pulley
MD998738 Mitsubishi Timing Tool

I am purchasing the belts from a vendor:
Power Enterprise Super Strong II Balance Belt $48.00
Power Enterprise Super Strong II Timing Belt $158.00
Power Enterprise Super V Accessory Belt $98.00

In addition I plan on replacing the PCV valve
MD152772 PCV valve
MN158072 PCV valve hose


Thanks

Replacing the water pump at 55K+. Is it because since your replacing most of the parts in the area you should do the water pump anyways?

Yes because if you don't, it's going to cost you time later on and you're going to feel like kicking your self on the rear end not to do it

Timing belt

Is the timing belt changed on age or milage? I know our schedule says 5 years or 60 K, but can we go longer safely. Are our engines interference or non-interference engines? Not to change the topic.

Thanks

Well if you hit 60k before 5 year - then change it.

I would NOT push past 60k - I have seen them skip and break in other cars.

We have interference motors - they go - so do your pistons, valves, wallet.
