are there any downfalls to leaving your timing belit cover off on a basically stock dsm?

I always say... Mitsubishi Engineers, for some reason, designed it to be there. So it should be there.

Up to you.. you are actually taking a huge risk when you do this. Rain will get up in there as well and make your belt easier to break... it will not last as long. If a little pebble gets in there, and it jumps timing, thats an automatic 500-1000+ damage right there..

i've had mine off for about 2+ years now, only because mine was warped and rubbed against the ac belt. havent had any problems with it, but i would like it if i had one on there instead, at least the bottom piece. just been too lazy to look for one i guess.
