Timing Chain Tensioners

The tolerances between the valves and pistons on some engines are very narrow, and this potentially disastrous dance between parts is all kept in harmony by the timing chain and tensioners. Make sure yours are all in proper working shape so you can continue to hear sweet sounds from your engine for years to come.

One-Piece Lower Chain Tensioner Update Kits
Our One-Piece Tensioner Kits will replace the original 2-piece lower chain tensioner with the style that was originally developed for the E36 M3 S50 motor . This improved tensioner is a single-piece assembly that utilizes a double-piston design with a stronger spring than the original. Switching to this unit is especially advised if you are experiencing increased timing chain rattle on startup or deceleration - a common problem on high-mileage vehicles. Available for early and late model applications.
