damn thats crazy man... 330k miles.... jeez... your friend must drive on water as welldavid said: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.Joe M said: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)
Uh what motor are you talking about? The SR or the KA?Jasper said: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
