Quick question regarding the chain kits! What kits do I go for as there are so many from various manufacturers and quality, I don’t want to get the wrong ones!
Especially as the ones I saw from a previous thread, that vocky recommends but are no longer available.

genuine cam chain kit £150 http://www.ebay.co.u...8YAAOSwagdXRwdE

genuine balancer chain kit £130 http://www.ebay.co.u...jE9Fpcf4VZ3ZdIw

Is this everything I need:-
- This one manufactured by TVT from neo bros https://rover.ebay.c...tm/232277646942
Or

- This one manufactured by Quinton hazell
https://rover.ebay.c...tm/232342435121

Or the 2 below which cost more, but are gm!

https://rover.ebay.c...tm/172213674221

https://rover.ebay.c...tm/153427205802

Or are the kits in the links that vocky recommends likely to be restocked?

If the cheaper ones are prone to failure, I would rather pay more and get the gm parts.

What is the general consensus on this?

I never advise anybody to use a pattern chain kit and I refuse to fit them.

 

The genuine kits are far better quality and often cheaper !

 

genuine z22se cam chain kit = £129 https://www.ebay.co....&frcectupt=true

 

same seller on ebay, but they double the price when they are out of stock

genuine balancer chain kit = £199 (normally the price halves once they have them back in stock) https://www.ebay.co....&frcectupt=true

 

otherwise £99 = https://www.ebay.co....&frcectupt=true
