Seems well built...beefier than stock
Just changed my timing chain and used this as the guide vs the black stock one. Beefier than stock...only time will tell. The stock one at 90k when I removed it was still in decent shape and not broken (all the components were decent...I think just some chain stretch and a little sprocket wear maybe made the chain too lose). Since it is beefier, it's a tighter fit sliding it up and into position. You may have to GENTLY take a flat blade screw driver and gently move the tip towards the front wall to get it to slide up all the way. DO NOT try and use excessive force...just move the top tip a bit and it should slide up into position.
WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY better than stock!
Great quality and solid construction quiets down any chain noise and works perfectly with the ECOTEC TIMING CHAIN GUIDE BOLT.
