What recommendations are you guys referring to? I have a Honda service manual in front of me right now, for 1996-2000 Civics, all models, recommending timing belt replacement at 105,000 miles for severe service, excluding where outdoor temps are frequently in excess of 110degF or colder than -20degF, in which case they say 60,000 miles.

I notice that you don't have any such findings to show us either. Not that I'd be impressed with NVH results measured by people working for a magazine - these people are english majors first, mechanics second, engineers "not at all," remember? NVH measurement is difficult to do right in a proper lab setting, let alone in some backyard dyno.

If the GM 3800 is your "gold standard" of engine refinement, then I know what sort of person I'm speaking to, and that it's pointless to continue this discussion of automotive technology...

I leave it to you to pursue an education in automotive design; it's not my job or desire to educate you (nor am I confident that it would be possible).
Come on fhqwhgads. I see you jockin' me. Tryin' to play like... you know me...
