Not sure why a timing chain change would make the car feel more pwerful, but either way good stuff, what was the cost?

Timing chain, new cam sprockets, all guides oilers and tensioner $990 .The teeth on cam sprockets get worn and worn tensioner and tensioner guide cant cope with slack in extreme case, its a subtle measurement but you do feel the difference when you have this done the engine will thank you back trust me
