Now many may disagree with me on this, but my opinion is this.
It's still a low mileage engine, and if everything else inside the cover looks good just replace the belt and call it a day. Unless you want to spend extra $$ on the whole kit when it's not due for another 40-50k.
For my belt there, I had records from the previous owner that the whole timing kit was done about 30k before I pulled that cover. Whoever did it obviously did not gap the crank pulley guide. I just went to the local parts store and picked up a belt only, replaced it, and left the rest of the kit alone. I'm confident that everything will last until the next change at 200k miles.
