are you fucking serious? yeah spend 5 bucks now and when it snaps and destroys the engine have fun spending a grand or so having someone swap in a new one for you. of course that 54 bucks would be alot cheaper looking at it now wouldn't it

If it came down to a used t-belt and not changing it at all, I would vote for the not changing it. I'm too lazy to do shit twice

What's the risk of buying it used besides dependability
:bash

You're doing preventative maintenance to make it more dependable, but you're skimping on the part (which is a fraction of what the labor costs if you're not doing it yourself) at the expense of... dependability? What makes you think this timing belt is in any better shape than the one you are swapping out, anyway?! Swapping a crucial part because it is due to be replaced with another used part is beyond retarded. Spend the extra $50 for God's sake. If you're really that strapped for cash, ride the bus for a few days. Don't eat out. Work an extra few hours. Sell some crap you don't really need or use. SOMETHING.
