Timing belt change

I'm curious how much it should cost to change the timing belt on a 2002 /V6. Truck has 90k on it so its ready. The dealer said around a grand including water pump and seals. A little shop by my house says about $500 for the same thing but not using genuine toyota parts. Whats the going rate ? Any reccomendations on a shop in so cal I can trust to do it right. Also reading about kevlar belts is it worth the extra.
Thanks

500 seems right. I did it myself with a gates belt and NAPA pump, going strong with 30k miles on everything.

I,ve had good luck with gates fan belts on my drag cars. They stay together when other blow apart after a couple passes. I didnt think of a gates timing belt. What about kevlar

IDK, I've just always had good luck with the gates brand so that's what I went with.

I paid my mechanic $300 for labor and I bought the OEM timing belt / water pump kit for $300 on eBay. So $600 for OEM is what I paid. I would recommend OEM parts if you can. So I'm guessing $500 is about right for aftermarket parts.
Good luck!
