Timing Belt Job: OEM Honda parts or aftermarket from O'reillys or comparable?

hey everyone

im at 110,300 miles on my 5th gen SH and ive been kicking myself ever since i hit 100k miles to change it, anyway, im finally going to get it done

noticed a little bit of weird idling yesterday so im not going to drive it anymore until this job gets done

im not going to do it myself but i am going to purchase the parts/kit and want it to include the tensioner

the best genuine kit i can find on ebay is about $300 and change at this link:
97-01 HONDA GENUINE PRELUDE TIMING BELT KIT 97-01 OEM : eBay Motors (item 330433082802 end time Aug-10-10 14:33:42 PDT)

local honda dealer here in San Antonio wants $400 for same kit

my question is, are there any comparable kits that run maybe around $200 and change that meets or exceeds the genuine honda parts?

ive been reading around and a lot of people keep saying that the parts should run you between $100-$150, but im not seeing those prices anywhere

are the parts just more expensive because its a 5th gen prelude?

all in all i absolutely do not mind paying the $300 if i have to

any input would be greatly appreciated, im without my car and i need it for work :(

thanks in advance

dude i recently had to make the same decision. its only like $100 difference, and piece of mind rarely comes cheaper than that. i made a thread a while back (couple months) and wrote out everything needed to change the t-belt and swap over to manual tensioner and price differences.

you use the normal belt. its gonna be super tight. the way i did it was to keep the tensioner pulleys loose, put the belt on everything else, then slide it on the tensioner and then tighten it down while guiding into place. putting the belt back on was one of the most difficult parts. however there is a special tool, i dont know if autozone might have it but in the helms manual it shows these belt guides that fit on the end of the cam gears and allow the belt to slide on.
