Default 99' 4D Civic LX. Timing belt?

It just got to 105,000 miles. I heard this can become an issue. I'd like to keep my car running smooth as my daily drivers. Haven't done a lot to it yet besides, tint, wheels, grill, and audio. I plan on dropping it this spring and doing a turbo/swap but that's for another topic and another time.

****ing tires plus charges like 600-700 for it to be done or something. Advice?

If you're doing a turbo/swap then you should do the timing belt yourself to learn some things. IMO, If you can't change a timing belt, you shouldn't be swapping an engine or turbocharging it.

Here's a good DIY timing belt thread.

if you decide to do it urself mark a spot on the cam gear and the block with a white grease pen b4 u take the belt off so its in the same spot it was b4 you removed the belt, you might also wanna mark a spot on the crack pulley and block as well

Thanks for the link to that DIY and othe other suggestions for doing this. Damn, I've looked at guides for setting up a turbo and **** but that seems even easier than this. It also scares the **** out of me. Oh I guess I didn't mention in the first post I also did an AEM SRI lol.

Doing this myself saves like $500.00 though. I really would like to.

If you decide to take on the job yourself, Majestic Honda has good prices for the OEM parts. Consider replacing the water pump and tensioner along with the timing belt. Removing the crank pulley bolt is the hardest part, unless you have access to a very good electric or air impact wrench. As mentioned above, the critical part of the job, however, is ensuring that the cam and crank are perfectly synchronized at TDC1 after installation of the belt and that the belt is properly tensioned.
