go with an OEM GM timing chain. alot of people have the cloyes and other aftermarket chains stretch with little miles on them

well i havent heard of the Gm chain vs the Cloyes...but cloyes makes nothing but timing components...and gm, yah well anyway id expect cloyes to have a better quality chain, im using one now and spinning it to almost 7 grand, and no probs or stretching yet, plus the cloyes has a lifetime wnty, gm is none

The TCE double roller timing chains for 3400s will hopefully be available next month (they are being made right now). Not sure on your time frame but these will be better than stock and also allow you to adjust the timing -6 -3 +3 +6 degrees. Not sure on price yet and if you aren't doing any performance upgrades, the stock chain is fine. I used the cheap chain from autozone after my cloyes chain stretched in 50k miles.

Humm sounds like cloyes are not going to be on my list if it stretched at 50K.
I am not looking to do ne high end performance mods, so no adjusting.
Looks like it will be the stock chain, ran great at 120k

Any one have the part number for the OEM chain?
