Hey all. I'm in the middle of a cam swap after the good 'ol lifter/cam failure and I'm wondering if I should change my timing chain while I'm at it. In all the videos I've watched and all the cam swap stories I've read it doesn't seem like anyone is really concerned with changing their timing chain. How long are they good for? My trucks got 185k on it.

Thanks.

If you have an eagle hemi (4th gen notorious for the tensioner failures) with that many miles and you're putting a hotter cam in, it's cheap insurance to replace it. Even if you only replace the tensioner.
