Hi there guys. Is the Cloyes timing chain kit a good one? I mean, it's cheaper than OEM and I have a Cloyes timing chain in my Trans Am without a problem. I saw they sell it here:

Cloyes timing chain kit for Grand Am (http://replacement.car-stuff.com/parts/carstuff/wizard.jsp?year=1999&make=PN&model=GRAM--006&category=A&part=Timing%20Chain%20Kit&returnurl=null&dp=true&showdc=true#top)

but there are two different part numbers with different prices. The description is the same for both of them though. My car is a 1999 Grand Am SE with the 2.4L engine. The 8th character in my car's VIN is a T. Anyone??

i can get u the exact cloyes number, but i thought those used belts and not chains, i could be mistaken though...

The 2.4L uses chains. I think I'm going to buy the Cloyes kit, since it is about $300 cheaper than OEM.
