In the last month I had 2 quotes from different shops for the chain/tensioner labor/parts. One shop was like $1650, the other was like $1720. That also includes the $200 lower chain cover.

Not sure what the water pump would cost.

I'm gonna order my own parts for the chain/tensioner just so I'm not paying a whole bunch at one time, then have them installed a few months later.

Good idea. Just make sure the shop you choose is OK with you providing your own parts. Some are, but some aren't. Also if a part you supplied fails they will not warranty their work, it will be on your dime. With that amount of labor cost I might be inclined to have them supply the parts. What is the difference in cost theirs to yours?

I didn't get a detailed quote, was just something quick he gave me over the phone. I've been going to this guy for the last 8 or so years and he's got no problems with me supplying my own parts. I'm not worried about it. The 2nd quote is a new shop in town, but I won't be going to him.

I just had my timing tensioner and timing chain/guides/cover replaced at 80k miles for $1100+tax. now that i have the old parts of my car in my hand, i am wondering if it was even necessary to pay extra to have the timing chain replaced. After googling it seems like the timing chain is supposed to be a lifetime part.
