Since everything he does is STAB, which item mathematically gives him more damage?

stab =! super effective.

only if your greninja hits a wide variety of pokemon for super effective damage does it make sense to use expert belt. if it hits most only for neutral, use life orb

a full attacker can use either probably. i myself would use expert belt b/c im irrationally scared of lo's recoil

Well, his coverage is good with ice beam, extrasensory, dark pulse and scald.

Assuming he uses scald on fennekin, which item would make him do more dmg?

in every case it's life orb. 1.3x damage vs. 1.2x

Why the heck are you using Scald? It's a Sweeper, not a Tank, use Surf.

Also, use Life Orb. Expert Belt only boosts Super Effective moves by 20%, LO boosts all moves all the time by 30%.
