Lose the skunk 2 tct. Oem is better. I have been running oem with no problems on skunk 2 stage 3 cams. If you do research the skunk 2 tct is no good. I had a hybrid one before my oem one and they were destroyed.


I'm all hopped up on Junk 2!!!

I was considering getting the toda timing chain I've read good things about it but the only thing stopping me from getting it is the $300 price tag lol

Man after I got my k24a2 I got back to my garage and ripped that head off so fast it was redicioulous to see if it was good an boom the rod let the piston go at the top of the stroke so it only bent two valves I was so happy to see the head was in perfect shape minus valves of course

Why pay 300 for toda when it's the exact same as an oem tensioner with a different internal spring? Plus oem is 40 bucks

O ic my bad lol yeah iono if that chain is really worth the 300 dollar price tag. Rarely do I hear about the chain breaking lol unless you preload the tct and put extra stress in the chain

There are reasons why we change the tensioner. I wouldn't feel too comfortable running an OEM tct on stage 3's without atleast buying a new tct every other oil change.
