He said it was very straight forward and did not run into any problems, it took around 3hours for him to do it. He said you just have to make sure not to let the tension in the chain go, or it will turn into an 8hour job haha.

I know O'Reilly's full synthetic is made for them by Mobil 1 and it's a cheaper route than buying the Mobil 1 brand label.

As in Walmart? Nope. Don't shop there. Won't shop there. Kind of anti-Walmart shopper. Only reason I ever go in is if I'm with my roommate. I think the only thing I've ever bought there was honey roasted Planter's peanuts.

Thats what happened to me= I forgot 'bout the tensioner. So a couple hrs later I had the timing cover back on. It really wasn't bad. I only issue I had was you have to pull the p/s pump hose off to get to one of the bolts that hold the pump on the motor. Other then that no issues, used a new front seal that was in stock too.
