My mechanic/Certified GM Tec buddy of mine had to burn some vacation time this week. I ordered the Aisin Timing Belt/Water Pump/Component Kit from Rock Auto last week. My Acura presently has 114k and I did not have that job done yet that is recommended from Honda/Acura at 105k. Anyways, Kit from Rock Auto was less then 200 bucks and he charged me a flat 250 bucks to complete the job from start to finish and adjust the valves. Looking forward to another trouble free 105 -- 114k trouble free miles overall. Changed the plugs at 85k so not worried about those for some time yet. Nice to have good/smart friends.

So how did the OE parts look when you replaced them? Like new or otherwise...?

Yep, for that amount of money I'd probably pay someone as well instead of doing it myself. Its not a hard job, but it can take a while if you've never done one.

That’s very shorty money for the work involved. You have a good friend.

I'd say you got a smoking good deal. I paid a lot more than that for my J-Series Honda t-belt replacement just to have it all blow up in 5000 miles. I don't say that worry you. You'll probably be fine. The guys on this forum say that t-belt jobs on those engines usually give no problems.
