Ok I'll just replace some o rings which are leaking oil, put in the new belt and new wide band O2 sensor and hope that's all the troubles I have with this car. Cause I keep getting a post cat too lean code

Is it stock or modified? Are you the original owner?

Yup so nothing that would require a tune. So all the items you are replacing seems like you are on the right track.

I listened to the video and also didn't hear anything out of the ordinary.
I recently changed my belt at close to 17k when it prematurely started squealing. I changed the belt and it eventually came back about a week later.
I read online about spraying it with 303 aerospace which I already had since I use it on all my plastic and rubber on the car inside and out on every wash.
I Drenched it with that while running and turned car off to let it dry and the squeal is long gone. It's not a dressing but rather a UV protectant that isn't
greasy like a belt dressing. It is worth a shot and will only further help protect the belt from cracking and aging with no side effects.

Those gatorback belts are no joke. I replaced my squeaky belt a few times and it would only help for a few days. I finally got a gatorback and itís been silent for a year. I went to my amazon order history to grab a link and noticed it wasnít a gatorback threw me off for a bit. Goodyear was bought by Continental and they changed the name of the belt but it was the same gatorback belt. Now it looks like the old stock is sold out so they have replaced it with a normal belt and use the same part number. It looks like there is no way to get a real gatorback anymore.

Are the new ones just as good or no?

The Continental version I got was identical to the Goodyear version but if a reorder it today it will be a traditional belt. The description even explains that they are phasing out the gatorback design. It looks like the gatorback is officially dead now.

Here is what I ordered:
Continental OE Technology Series 4060815 6-Rib, 81.5" Multi-V Belt https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001C9A4YA..._w1hhDbBNTQTDX

Same item number but completely different part now.

Edit: Actually this is the item listing that explains the change:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000C36BHG..._-9hhDb2K3ZVT8

It's not rough at all. Perfectly healthy engine. I hear a touch of the cricket for a split second in the third video.
