    Just had both chains done on my Signum 2.2 at 56k, and the motor sounds a lot quieter and smoother, there was quite a bit of stretch in the cam chain, looked clean and well oiled as well.

    The jet is supposed to be different but there are still minor probs with the tensioner, also the chain can still stretch as said by Dek. The new fix for the tensioner from what I hear is the newer 2.0T one.

    Sorry mate all his deals are done via PM, I think he charges around the £250 area, might be cheaper. I know all the guys on the 2.2 forum rave about him.
