Default Old Tension for new Tension

Hi guys
I'm either reading conflicting information or reading just wrong.

But is it possible and beneficial to fit a new style Tensioner and bracket to a 2002 petrol cruiser.

So fit the 2003 onwards version that's seemingly more reliable?

If I've read right theirs some mods to do to the upper CAM cove or buy a new one?

Regards
Marty

If you are referring to the 2.4 engine you are right. you can modify the cover. I don't know if one is more reliable though.

I bought a new kit from Chrysler and it came with new style tensioner and cover. Appears you can cut and make old cover work, but that looks like a pain. Assuming they only sell the new versions and you would have to go aftermarket or eBay for old one. Worth every penny having improved tensioner. Could only get kit and it was $191.00
