Just the intake inlet not the manifold.. Like your intake tube, the filter assembly.. LOL.

Nice write up man. Have fun trying to put the timing cover back on with the valve covers all ready sitting there?

Just some advice anytime you have a problem like that it is more than likely a oil pressure problem that lead to the failure of the tenisioner (the opperate off of oil pressure) you should change out the oil pump while your in there.

Ouch! That's exactly what my guides looked like when I did mine. Sept I called Ford and they wanted 75 bucks for each side for the guides and they didn't have the tentioners in stock. So I put the old ones back on... Bad idea. Car is at the shop and I am waiting on a phone call to let me know what's up with it.

Well word to the wise... The guides you order from autozone will not work, well the left side will but the right side does not match up. The tensioners from Autozone are $40 each and they appear to be the same as OEM (stamped the same ect).. Autozone does offer the tensioner arms but I cannot attest to the quality or fitment.

I am returning the the guides to autozone and buying OEM at the dealer... I will also buy the tensioner arms at the dealer..

The parts list at about $20 each at the dealer

So my new total must be adjusted by about $40. So...

Thanks for the write-up!

You really should have replaced the chains while you had it apart though. They stretch over time.

I've got 135K on mine and it's only making a very slight tick noise. Guess I'm lucky! I'm planning to replace the gears, chains, guides and tensioners (and pump I guess) all at the same time.

Do you really need to pull the intake manifold??? Dang.

Damn man. My car is just turning 80,000 on a 2000 model. If my engine started doing that, i would be really really really pissed.

OK YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PULL THE INTAKE MANIFOLD- I meant the air cleaner assembly.. If a MOD can change that in the writeup that would be great...

The chains were not damaged and it appears that they are good for approximately well over 150k miles.. It wouldn't matter if they stretch as the tensioners and arms would compensate..

As far as my car specifically goes.. The guides I ordered for the 2000GT do not fit at all.. The guides that will fit my car are from a 2002-2004. I need to figure out how to reference #'s to see if my engine has been swapped out... Has anyone with a 1999-2001GT have pictures of thier engine with the front covers off?? I am going to attach the schematics later.... This is crazy that OEM parts wouldn't bolt up.. I just wonder what the deal is with my car.. It is worlds faster then all the other same gen GT's I have driven.... WTF...
