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:eek:hsnap:

im on the same boat as you. i'm just hoping my head are reusable.
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

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.

What tct would you recommend we already covered skunk 2 Is junk and hybrid is out of stock for a while....and also do you know what head studs I would run I'm am leaning towards k24 arp studs but idk if I use k24 ones or k20 (they will be arp just don't know which ones to order)

Iono everybody else I know be running oem tct with no probs. I plan on changing my tct out every 10k miles. Like I said Jotech has been running the oem tct on stage 3 for two years with no problems.

I would think you would use k20 studs because k20 head?
