Default What timing set are you all using?

New to the forum, I am currently doing plenum repair and also W/P, Efan's, Timing set, cap rotor wires and plugs. My question is what timing set are you guys using? Id like to go with a double roller set, is there any interference problems with the timing cover? Also looking for some suggestions on brands and if anyone has run into problems. Thanks

The stock chain is a stacked chain 5 or 6 links wide with soild gears, only asking cause no auto part store in my area stock anything other than another oem set. Id like to go double roller just so I dont get as much stretch out of it. I only have 133,xxx on this set and I have 3/8" stretch already spec is less than an 1/8". Ive used cloyes sets before in other engines but never have had them apart again so don't know how there really doing they were not my vehicles just installed what friends bought for theirs. Just trying to find out if anyone has used particular brands in 5.9's and had luck or haven't cause I dont feel like doing this again in 30,000 to 40,000 with a chain stretching again.

I installed a double roller MP (Mopar Performance) set in my Ram a couple three years ago and things are still fine.

I run a Mopar set and I have no complaints.

Thanks for the info, do you have any links to the mopar timing set? When I go on mopar performance's site there's nothing for 5.9's anymore all they have is parts for 5.7 and 6.1 hemi's. Searched around google and others cant find anything. I can get a Cloyes set for 19 bucks off ebay im gonna try has the same casting number as Jegs and JCWhitney sets, I dont need a 4 degree advance/retard not running forced induction Yet! Ill try it out and let you all know hopefully it helps someone. Thanks for the help everyone and thanks for looking.
