260,000 km just seems like a lot of milage and my oil pressure at an idle has dropped under 275 kpa...eek better of with a high volume pump anyways. Seems to me that a timing chain replacement is long overdue and why not go balls deep and replace bearings, rings, gaskets and seals. Oh what the hell i might as well regrind the valves and seats and port match the heads while i'm in there.

What does 266K KMs tranlate into for miles???

I have 211K on my factory motor, nothing more than the supercharger and LIM has been off of it and it runs pretty well. Idles like **** but beside the point lol.
