My uncle and i started the 03 to ZE engine swap this weekend, all is well except for one thing..
The timing belt i bought from mazda didn't match the used timing belt that was on the 03, in fact it was about 2 inches longer. The code on the box/belt read KJ-01 or something like that.. could it be that the belt was for a millenia 2.5L or are the two belts just not identical?? Where did you guys (with a ZE) get your timing belts from when you performed the swap? What was the code on the box?
Please give me an answer guys, i cant continue till i figure it out.

alright, problem solved. My uncles friend (the guy who hooks me up with genuine mazda factory parts) gave me the wrong belt. The code on the box and belt read KJ01, which is for what i assume to be the 2.5L in the millenia. Yesterday i returned it and compared it to the new one he brought which was coded KL01. It is shorter just like the one in the ZE 99% sure it is the same belt. I guess i am ready to continue the swap!!!
