I thought I read somewhere that it was a no no on a Turbo V-6 to use a double roller chain.
Not sure what the reasoning for it being bad was though.

Double rollers tend to stretch more than single chains...also, they have a tendency to eat the tensioner and spit it out. Therefore, most of us don't use the tensioner because it just becomes more metal in the pan before it is over.

On the stock single chains, the stock tensioner keeps the slack in hand.

Mike, I have taken the last year off..now, I am preparing to move out to the farm and then I need to find a new means of making a living.


I started pulling the ac pieces off my son's car to replace compressor,dryer, etc but got caught by rain and two bolts that should be studs and they will not come out as the heads don't clear the clutch. Therefore, I will have to back each one out a bit at a time. Looks like I am going to have to pull the IC to get a wrench on the lower bolt. Now I know why so many only have one bolt or stud in them.
