Inline PRO Race Spec Honda S2000 F20C/F22C Timing Chain Tensioner New Core S2K TCT
As you may already know, there are many problems associated with the stock timing chain tensioner. Here are some of the most common problems that develop with the stock unit:
-The timing chain stretches and the guides wear over time creating excessive slack in the overall assembly.
-When throttle is lifted after a high rpm pull, the sudden change in momentum causes excessive slack in the timing chain. This also causes a sudden change in oil pressure in the stock tensioner.
-Sudden downshifts in the transmission or engine braking also further exaggerates the slack in the chain mechanism.
-Installing higher tension valve springs and high lift camshafts will also contribute to the problem with chain slack.
-The most common problem is the noise associated with start-up and idling, which has to do with lack of oil pressure behind the tensioner piston and excessive wear on the worn screw gear.
*** ALL OF THE CONDITIONS MENTIONED ABOVE WILL OVER WORK THE STOCK TENSIONER AND CAUSE THEM TO FAIL OVER TIME.***
WARNING - DO NOT USE INLINE PRO'S 3MM HEADGASKET. SERVERE ENGINE DAMAGE WILL OCCUR***
They have developed their race tensioners through their RACE program to address and fix all the problems
