Timng Belt Question

Should I go with a honda belt or would a napa belt be ok. Bought cv boots for my old dc2 from napa and the boots wouldn't fit for shit. Went and got honda ones they went right on. Same problems with a timing belt? And if other brands do work fine let me know what you used.

dano28 may have said something they shouldn't have...
I would get the Honda belt but, I'm sure that NAPA's belt would be just fine.

When you need to replace your CV boots it means your old ones were torn. The boots you got from NAPA were probably the universal type so it's not surprising that they didn't fit. CV boot are not something that auto stores carry. They logic is....damaged boot = damaged CV joint= new or rebuilt half shaft. That, NAPA would have.

any brand timing belt should fit. or size them up and see if they r the same length width etc but i would get the Honda belts though u could never go wrong with those

Is it your only vehicle?
If so i would suggest going with Honda OEM parts.
On my SE i went with NAPA belts and water pump.
But on my 4dr, Honda everything!
