Hi, new member here.
I just acquired a 2003 Cavalier coupe with a 2.2 Ecotec and a 5 speed standard.
It was a southern car and is pretty clean and rust free compared to most of the cars its age we see in northern NY.
The previous owner (my best friend) took the engine out of it to put in his moms car. I traded an old truck for the car and a high mileage (180k) engine that runs pretty well.
I know these early Ecotecs were known to have timing chain issues, so my plan is to replace the whole set along with the water pump. This is what I found on ebay for a complete kit.
Just wondering if anyone has any experience with these kits. I know I will need some tty bolts and will also be putting in the improved oil nozzle and the 3rd new style tensioner.
Also replacing the clutch if anyone has recommendations for a good stock type replacement.
