Timing tensioner capacity?

I don’t usually post on these threads because someone had already answered what I am looking for usually but I can’t find anything.
I recently got a 2013 GTI with 114k and the original timing chain and tensioner on it. I took a picture of the tensioner through the inspection port. My question is, what is the maximum amount of threads that this thing should be pushed out?

You should really take a block 93 measurement to verify phase timing on cold start.

Do you have OBD11 or VagCom

I'd say you really need to follow this as a first step and monitor the resulting value before you eventually perform the timing chain job.
