Hey Glenn how's it going up there? There have been a couple of posts just like yours on here with pages of answers and reasonings. Not to be a smart ass but hit the search button and you might find immediate answers to your question without having to wait or hoping that the same guys that replied before chime in again. Just an idea. Just food for thought I don't put as many miles as you on the car anymore but I successfully ran a Comp belt for years and now run a Jesel unit as well as the front mount distributor.
If you need any Jesel pricing let me know.

Just curious, what is it that you like better about the Xceldyne? Is it just that it is more durable, ease of adjustment, better built, all of the above, etc? Comp Cams is supposed to have something that makes the camshaft end play easier to set, is the Xceldyne similar in that respect?

All the above and they use ceramic ball bearings instead of the torrington bearing. Top notch!

I've got a Jesel on my 555". I did a 2500 mile road trip with it last summer and a lot of street driving and dyno racing inbetween and it's been fine without a leak or a drip.
