    I would say not very often unless you are gonna do a cam swap or something.

    90,000-120,000 is fine for a timing chain.

    A belt, not so much, but since our cars have chains they last a hell of a long time.

    Has anyone ever heard of an LS-2 chain on an LS-1 soundind like a gear drive or a blower? My new chain is very loud. Why?

    What type of chain did you buy? Did you tighten it yourself or did somebody else do it. Maybe it is too loose???

    There is now way it can be to loose. If it is to loose it is not the right one for the car. The only thing that could be loose is the bolt that hold the timming gear to the cam. If that is the case it would be rubbing the timming cover and you would definetly know this. Makes a hell of a noise. It would also be making metal from the gear rubbing the cover. This could be your problem.

    upgrade from the stock ls1 chain and that should be the only time you should need to replace it.
