Yup, lol.

I got the tensioner replaced to prevent this... and it happens right when I replace it LOL

I think there wasn't enough oil pressure when I was cranking up (not too sure?) and it skipped a tooth... I'll probably call back to see if they can inspect other things too.

They were nice about it - they double checked and will re-do the timing chain on Tuesday.

Got the car back and it needed a new chain and chain guide. Car runs a little smoother and sounds a little quieter (minus the loud fuel injectors).

Great guys at IT as always!

I've done my carbon cleaning recently as 63k at k&h. Car definitely runs hella smooth now and is more peppy. My valves were pretty nasty. Maybe due to the short drives I have to take for work.

Although a random rough idle I get is back. Not sure what that is. It's not misfiring.

On start-up and it will shake a tiny bit before RPMs drop?

Yeah! Exactly! It even does it for a while afterwards when I leave the go station but that's just b cause I want to get out of dodge fast. Any idea what causes that?

Did you clean your throttle body? If it's gummed up it will cause a rough idle at start up, just remove the pipe going to the TB and spray with carb cleaner and use a rag to clean the barrel, the sides and back of the butterfly.

I've looked for answers to this and... apparently it's normal

Hmm I'll give that a go. I guess that wasn't part of the carbon clean process. I have TB cleaner at home too. Will update when I do it next weekend hopefully

I never ended up cleaning the throttle since life got in the way to work on the car. But ended up swapping my stock coils for red top ones. This seems to have addressed the issues. I guess they were on there way out after 67k. I guess they had some internal degradation so at certain temps they would act up. Had the same issue with my old car where the spark plug boot would arc when it was slightly damp outside
