I doubt your hearing timing chain rattle at 67k miles. Your chain obviously is not stretched. Maybe your hearing something else?

So, you have a updated tensioner and your chain isnít stretched, and your car has relatively low miles. Why in the world would you want to waste money on replacing parts that donít need replacing?

If you can get the new motor complete for $2k i'd do that if i were you. If you have the tools and ability to swap the motor yourself then you should do it, its a pretty simple car to work on.

Most VAG parts are cheaper in Europe IIRC, probably because they are made there. Cheapest price i could find for a OEM PCV was $130.
