Default Timing belt for 98 Integra GS-R

Anyone tell me when the appropriate time for a timing belt change should be
for my 98 Intregra GS-R?

The manual states 60,000.
Other Honda owners say 90,000.
Some mechanics say somewhere between 60k and 90k.

Recommendations??

This would be in the severe schedule? I think you will find if you look in
the normal schedule it will say 90,000 or maybe even 105,000.

You are getting a lot of opinions because the answer from the manufacturer
has been changing. In 1990, they all needed to be done at 60,000. The new
ones are now up to 105,000 or more.

Look at the description of what constitutes severe service in your manual.
If you meet it, change the belt at 60,000. If you don't, then wait until
the mileage & years listed for normal service.

Personally, I wouldn't go more than 90k miles before changing the belt. As
much work as it is to change the timing belt (and all the other crap that
really should be changed while your down that far), it would be much more
troublesome (and costly) to replace the engine in the event that the timing
belt broke.

The reason that the interval is changing is that there are now
"long-life" timing belts available that are stronger than the originals.
I would NOT try to extend the interval on the original belt, it is NOT
the extended life version. It is FAR cheaper to replace the belt than to
repair the damage caused by a broken one!

I don't think anybody is advocating running a belt longer than the
manufacturers recommendation that came with the car. Stick to the mileage
and years in the service schedule that is in your owners manual.

Some people are asserting that they will never go longer than "x" miles
(60k, 90k, etc) just because ... If your car's schedule calls for 105k mile
belt change interval and your driving is in the "normal" category, and you
want to change it every 60k anyway, more power to you. How about sending
some of that wasted cash my way?
