u should of changed it before you put your motor in..crank pulleys are pain in the ****..

OEM belt and you might as well change your water pump while your in there.

I can get you your TB and w/p from honda if you want for under list

canadian tire carries all aftermarket replica junk.. if you want to, sure go ahead, but nothing beats OEM Honda.

because once you are in there changing the belt, the water pump is easy to change, they are recommended to be changed at the same intervals too.. so might as well.

$400 isn't bad.. but I'm sure you can find it cheaper

Leading Edge is on our affiliates page, they have done a couple timing belt changes for members. Also Defcon, Altech, ect. Give the shopa a call.

You could just buy a Greddy kevlar timing belt and never worry about it again. My friend had one on his DSM for 3 years before he sold the car. If you know anything about dsm's, they're notorious for snapping timing belts.
