    Timing Chain: Single or dual row?

    I am picking up the last parts prior to my cam change on my 2001 Z28. The timing chain is one of those pieces I have been advised that I need. I see a lot of them on Ebay. The question comes down to using a double row timing chain or a heavy duty single row. I have heard that a double row chain can have clearance problems with the oil pump.

    Can I use the existing sprockets? I have 92K on my Z28.
    Thanks for the input!

    You can use the LS2 chain with stock sprockets, I did on my set up and so did 2 of my friends.

    double rollers are a PITA... plus you'd have to have your pulley milled for it to go back together

    another +1 for LS2... much beefier then ls1 chain too

    swap out your oil pump for a new LS6 or ported shimmed LS6 (from TSP)
