    Default Cobra Engineering secondary timing tensioner fix

    Finally thanks to Jameshell we have a affordable fixed secondary passenger side tensioner. Beware big pictures. The tensioner literally took a minute to swap over the parts. I will also show how easy it is to swap stuff. This takes around 4 degrees of timing error off the passenger side intake camshaft. James did such a great job even down keeping the oiling groove that oils the chain. The solid steel piece is top notch.

    I agree that James did a very nice job, Brett. However, I was throwing the atta-boy at you for the clarity of your photo journalism if not the brevity of the write up.

    Nice job!

    This thread would benefit from pricing or a link to the product page. I tried googling it but it just brought me right back to this thread.

    Didn't see the exact price on the other thread...

    I recently did the cams on my car, did them myself, I installed FordGT cams, I bought & used the Ford cam tool kit, it has a key that fits into the back of the cams to lock them in the correct positions with all timing gears at a certain position, I did notice how all the slack still needed to be taken out of the longer timing chains as it appeared that if they were not totally tight while at the correct positions it would throw off the cams timing, but I never thought about there being any slack from cam to cam on the little chains between them...
    Do you guys honestly think this new tensioner that James of Cobra engineering has made is gonna work that much better than a stock one?? Especially on a car with 15k miles on it... Not trying to take anything away from James, His parts look Awesome!

    The original poster mentioned that the cams using a stock tensioner could be 4 degrees off... what is that info based on? And what does 4 degrees equate to in horsepower lose?

    If the cost is $100 what is there to really loose. When can we order it?
