Adjustable timing chain tensioners advice

Post by 240sx-venezuela » Sun Aug 04, 2019 9:10 am

Hi everybody, I hope to get some info from you guys, recently I saw in a website a guy made self adjustable timing chain tensioners for ka24e and de, have anyone used these, I think is a real improvement over the stock ones but I see they are a little pricey, 120$ each one.

The website is

It's an awesome idea. That's exactly how a lot of car's timing chain adjusters work from the factory. And they "appear" to be well made in the pics. I don't know anything about that company though.

neither I, It would be great for sure, I´m investigating If I can use one of the tensioner from a Frontier Diesel 3.0 wich is very common here in my country, and they look identical, Ive heard many folks that their valves touched the pistons caused by the slack in the timing chain sometimes.
