Default 6.1 Hemi Tensioners May Be No Better Than The 5.7

This is mainly for all you out there who have or were debating "upgrading to the tensioner from the 6.1 Hemi to repair or prevent failure of the 5.7 timing chain tensioner/guide assembly. I just finished tearing the cover off of a 2007 Charger with a 6.1 that has lunched its tensioner/guide assembly. At first glance this seems to disprove the theory that the 6.1 design is safe(r) from failure compared to the 5.7 because I have now seen one of each.
