Trade secret: Mitsuboshi is the OE manufacturer that originally supplied the Integra timing belts to Honda. It's the white box for Honda. It's the exact Honda part minus the Honda logo and Honda pricetag... (like buying Denso parts--another Honda OEM). Mitsuboshi's timing belts are boxed together in Aisin timing belt/ water pump kits (made in Japan). Yamada is the OEM for the water pump and thermostat housing, but idk where you could get real Yamada parts other than a Honda/ Acura dealer.mitsuboshi is another good choice for timing belt, good made in japan quality.
yeah, the belt have started to fall apart in some areas around the teeth, forget to take a picture. but i cant argue that it was a damn good quality belt tho, same for the water pump.Gates makes some OEM timing belts for Honda. You can't go wrong with gates. But damn, 11yrs ?
I change the timing belt on my Integra every 4 years.
