Default Timing Belt Kit, Anygood? 01 EX

Having the timing belt done shortly. Saw an interesting kit on Amazon for $150 shipped for my 01 Civic EX. 136K miles but unable to verify if the timing belt has ever been done. I've heard of some of the brands, what do you think?

With stuff like a timing belt (if it breaks, you probably just destroyed your motor), I would suggest to stick with Honda parts. I am sure the link you posted will be fine. However, if it were my car, I would be uneasy about it.
