Factory BMW timing chains can hold up to just about anything and
often last the entire life of a standard vehicle without needing
replacement. However, when building an engine for performance use;
the best is always taken into consideration, especially when the
cost is very close to OE.
These German-made chains are manufactured to a higher tensile
strength by the OEM for greater timing accuracy and longevity.
VAC Tech Tips:
A fresh timing chain is recommended on performance rebuilds.
When they are available for a specific engine, these are the same
chains we use in our VAC builds.
