Cool OEM tensioner

I recently did some work on my 02 pt cruiser. I ordered the tensioner, idler, and timing belt component kit from Gates. It has the OEM tensioner. I went ahead and used it, but have read that it is better to replace this with the updated tensioner. Does anyone think I will have any problems by using the OEM tensioner? What is the difference, and why does even Chrysler recommend this conversion? Just curious.

Default Re: OEM tensioner

They used the OEM tensioner for the first 4 years and only updated it in 2004 so you should be good for at least that long and probably longer.
