which timing chain kit would you get?
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...sPageName=WDVW - $160
http://www2.nisspartswholesale.com/p...iming+Gear+Kit - $216
Nissan wants $500
NAPA autoparts wants $400
The only piece missing from the kit on ebay is a front crank seal, which goes for $8 at Nissan and its in stock.
$500 is way too much for a timing chain overhaul. I'm pretty sure if I dont buy from NISSAN it shoudl be ok, but you never know so I'm asking you guys here for advise. Should I get the nissan kit for $500 or just go with my other option (ebay or nisspartswholesale).
between nisspartswholesale and ebay, there is a $60 difference. Let me know what you guys think.

Yeah, no timing chain kit that I ever came across was $500. They were all no more than $150. $500 is a '97 shortblock at the junkyard with 50,000 miles. Maybe Nissan thought you mean't the timing chain cover?

Just watch out for some of these aftermarket kits use cheap steel(powder?) in there Cam gears. I've always been told to use the factory kit.

... Seems to be a bit more than what would be necessary to change it, and looking at what would be ABSOLUTELY necessary, the number you threw up was about right... Skip courtesyparts this time around.
