I might be wrong but I would reckon around 70k.

As said worth just changing for peace of mind!

youve had 13 is200 sports and youve never changed a timing belt ?? :) 80000 is whats reccomended. at the end if the day would you believe if someone tells you it has been done without reciept or when theres a bit of tippex writing under the bonnet saying...." tb 90000" ha ha . safest bet is just do it.did you contact podge about his sport in fermoy??

Every timing belt schedule change is at 60k miles or 100k km :wink:
so yes you should be looking at doing a full kit idlers, belt, pulleys etc..
