    Question 2.2 /2.0T cam-chain tensioner

    hi all,
    as most of you wud know i have a 2007/57 2.2i direct sri and although my cam-chain isnt rattling, i want to change my chain and replace the tensioner..
    However i have read on this superb forum that i should get the 2.0Turbo tensioner to replace the 2.2 one, as i belive its better and prevents the chain from snapping..

    cud someone point me in the right direction as to a part number for the 2.2 chain and part number for the 2.0 turbo tensioner ..prices wud be fantastic also....

    many thanks guys.....Micky.

    The Net tensioner come's as standard in all new Gen VX chain kits m8. Only buy genuine kits, LMF kits are not Gen by the way.

    As they're supposed to last the life of the car, Vauxhall wouldn't class them as consumables, or items that often get damaged in shunts such as headlights.
