Default did my timing belt...

i finally got around to changing my timing belt. $30 and 3 hours later i found out my old belt really wasnt that bad. 99k miles on it, but looked like it could go way further.

Try not to buy anything but original honda belts. its only slightly more in price. you dont want to risk it braking. it can do some serious damage to your engine.

ie had really good luck with the goodyear gator belts. but then again i never keep a motor longer than the timing belt will last.
