what timing belt do i get for a d16a?



#1
I bought a 99 civic ex, i believe there should be a d16y8 in it yet the badge says d16a and i want to replace the timing belt. But i need to know what car this possibly comes from. The car has a rebuilt title so it wouldnt surprise me if it has a swap. I really appreciate the help.

is it a mini-me swap? VTEC head with non-vtec block?

Someone had to of blown the y8 and found a 4th gen si or 1st gen integra bottom to swap in

from a quick google search it seems you use the one for the head you have, look for casting numbers above your exhaust manifold/header whatever you have and post it up or google it to see which head you have, most likely a y8 head
