whats the advantage again.....does not wear out as often?

usally with the belt , they stretch more , then need to be replace about every100000kms or 60000 miles, if not they can slip a tooth or 2 and then your timing goes out the window , car might not even start
chains are a little noisier than a belt , but are far more robust

Wow, this is good to know, I'm thrilled it's a chain, as stated above, it might be a bit louder, but it's not a maintanence item like a belt is, and having replaced the belt twice on my CRX-Si twice, the costs do add up because typically you replace the water pump at the same time because of labor cost, and they are already there.
