Belt? Doesn't the V-8 have a chain? I've never heard of a V-8 with a belt...although I could be wrong.
There have been plenty of V-8's with belts. Belts are quieter than chains and chains are only somewhat more durable (e.g. you might get 150K out of chain and you typically get 90K+ out of a belt). Most late model OHC V-8's will use belts. The most notable exception would be the Ford family of modular V-8's.

Nothing wrong with belts...they typically work great! In fact, you can convert most domestic motors (e.g. SB/BB Chevy, SB Ford...) to belt drive behind a sealed cover.
