You have the revised timing chain components. Period.
It seems like that should be the case but I've just seen nothing definite on it - that LCI should of been the first line they fixed it on though.

No issues with the car so far, just passed 70k yesterday, no leaks, smells, sounds.

Looking into a m performance exhaust, idk yet though, with that in the back of my mind I'm afraid to boost performance in any way. Exhaust seems like a safe mod though even tho it won't really boost HP.
