With there being such a huge difference in price between an OEM Nissan timing belt and a GReddy or other belt, what is the big difference? Why are non Nissan belts so much?

The aftermarket belts as well as the Nismo one are reinforced compared to the OEM belt and intended for highly-stressed engines like track/race cars or built motors. The OEM one is fine for regular use but if you want extra peace of mind you can get the aftermarket ones. They're also a good choice if you want a showy-looking belt if you prefer to run your car minus the timing belt cover lol.
