They aren't expensive. www.rockautoparts.com has a Gates timing belt for $20, and a Dayco tensioner for $37. I think when people were talking about how much it cost to have it done, they were talking about labor prices, if you pay to have it done by a shop. Good luck!

Its the labor that cost the big bucks... and maybe the water pump... the belt itself isn't so much unless you're buying it from the dealer or getting a kevlar belt like this one...

That HKS belt is a nice one. My buddy runs an HKS belt on his Mitsubishi Evolution II (600WHP) and it takes quite a bit of abuse as far as timing belts go. But for a daily driver, and even mildly modified, I wouldn't see the need for a belt like that. Gates makes damn fine belts as well.
