I’m leaning towards AC Delco, Continental, Dayco or Gates (I think).
All are reputable for timing belts (and all make an OEM belt for at least one brand that I can think of).

I haven’t had issues with daycos or conti’s. I’m certain all of my past TBs have been Conti’s and my past serpentines have been daycos or gators (Goodyear’s, IIRC). I did manage to find a unicorn shop that will do the work with me supplying the parts. A bonus since I know what parts will be on there.

So another question. I’ve replaced serpentine belts plenty of times. I’ve never replaced the tensioner. Has anyone done the tensioner at the same time? I’ve read it’s “recommended,” but I’ve never had an issue with the tensioner.... like ever.

Thanks for the input so far.
The tensioners on the 1.4, at least,fail often. Additionally, there's a bearing/pulley there that can wear out as I've had it in other cars. I'd throw a tensioner on that list as well.
