Default Gear drive?

Does anyone out there offer a gear drive timing chain setup for the 3.8s I would think that they would at least make one for the GN'* 3.8. If so would it fit and what kind of an advantage would that give someone.

Your car is a gear/timing chain setup already.

I can't imagine what you would gain from that. Ours have a self-adjusting tensioner, and are typically good for over 100k or longer.

There would be neglible performance gains on an older car.

accurate timing and the sound (whine) designed for high hp+tq motors to prevent jumping time or breaking a timing chain

For the money you could run NAAAAAWWWSSS lol....

Kinda a waste, kinda like an underdrive pulley, for that "5hp". IMO.
