Re: info guys.

I can't say one way or another b/c I don't really know....but is there a particular reason why? Are you worried about it stretching? A belt is good for approx 100k miles. That's gotta count for something.

Re: info guys.

I havn't heard of a conversion kit. I am however about to do a timing belt job on my lude as I am starting to hear the water pump bearing. I parked it last night as I got back from vacation and it was sounding alot worse. I'd hate to have that thing throw a timing belt and bend a couple exhaust valves.

Plus a timing chain, they also wear out. I had to change one on my old Plymouth Sattelite not an easy task by any means.

Re: info guys.

I think timing chains are more for bigger engines. Although the new EVO has a timing chain.

Re: info guys.

I can see why he wants a chain. It would be a lot more effective if you had to take it off and beat someone's ass with it. Belt just wouldn't cut it.

Re: info guys.

I think chains usually last longer and aren't really notorious for breaking.

Re: info guys.

there would be no point in doin the k20, if you are doin a k series swap you need to go k24 block and k20 head.

but with the money you will have in that motor setup, you could have a real nice runnin h22 that would outrun the swapped motor.
