yeah i got the rattle at startup. only a little bit until it warms up. so i have a new VCT & solenoid. The gasket is leaking at the tensioner as well. so i have a new gasket for that as well. the engine itself is in very good condition but done heaps of km's as a daily drver so i thought, why not change the chain as well? so ordered a naprec strengthened chain & checked out the workshop manual & to my horror, discovered that the oil pan & cross beam needs to come out. not to also mention all the other shits & bits like alternator, power steering, a/c, etc. it's a much bigger job than the vl for sure. i have seen merc roller press kits on ebay but they cost around $350-500 & not sure i they will be compatible for the sr20. the story is i've treated the engine very good but after 15years, i decided to upgrade turbo with a gtx (now installed), upgrade brakes , clutch, electronics, intake, exhaust & repaint underside which now brings me to the engine. i'm not planning on removing engine or the head (for now anyway).
