For real. Unless something severe happens, it should last a long time.

My 240 had the original chains on it when I traded it in (140,000 miles)

Not really needed with a chain. I am pretty sure I have never heard of anyone ever breaking one on a Nissan.

My NX just passed 175k this weekend and I am still out there racing it with the original motor.
The g20 has like 167k on it and its still gets us to work everyday without any issues.

My friend has a b13 se-r with 330k on it and it still is running perfectly fine.

Speaking of 240s. There is a TSB on the chains on it. Having weak tensioners and guides, the chain wobbles/slack and hits the chain cover and mix oil/water and catasthropy.

In any case, it shouldve been fixed with our cars since the weak guides/tensioners thing is like years ago already.

hmm. that makes me second guess the motor i got. i was told the timing chain most likely needs to be replaced (never opened the motor up, but it was making that clicking sound like the chain was getting old/stretched)

then again, it could be air in the hydraulic lifters. ive heard that can cause clicking...hmmmmmmmmmmm

I would replace the tensioner and guide before anything else. Those are likely culprits from ticking noises. Not the chain itself.
