    Default 5.4L DOHC Steel Timing Chain Guide Kits

    SO anyway, as most of the modular engine owners know the factory plastic timing chain guides wear out quite quickly in the 03-04 engines( at least in Australia they did) i was told by my local ford dealer that the fixing kit for the tensioner noise on start up has steel tensioner guides and costs about $800AUD. i did find an aftermarket company in the states who made them, but at the time i had a brain fart and did not bookmark them.

    Soooooooo, i would like to know if anyone here knows who makes the the "steel tensioner guide 5.4L dohc timing kits", as i will be doing the fix after i have finished paying for the car and fitting some bigger heads/cams while the front of the engine is pulled apart anyway. as i feel F.I is being lazy N.A FTW(in about 5 years :*{)

    also does anyone know of any companies who do stroker rotating assemblies for the 5.4, i've seen short/long blocks but no actual assembly kits for the 5.4's.
    Thank you in advance to those who can point me in the right direction

    Cheers, Big Joe

    I have heard of steel tensioners, but not guides. I would think that would make quite the awful racket when running...

    yeah i was most definitely hearing teh information wrong, it WAS steel tensioners NOT steel guides. but now i'm having trouble finding kits that have adjustable cam sprockets for the 5.4's hopefully cloye's will be able to clear things up for me with their products.
