Hi

There is a lot of BS about tensioners, If you want a stock look fine, go for the later non "pressure refreshed" tensioners and use collars or drop a ball bearing in the bottom (The "Jerry Woods Mod") either solution is preferable to mech tensioners. either way its not like your early 911 drove out of the factory and had tensioner failure 5K down the road, it was more like 100,000K, so all this 'tensioner failure' angst is crap. My early 911 failure was caused by the original rubber/wire chain rails collapsing, I wouldn't rebuild early tensioners but if you are concerned carry a spare pair they only take a couple of hours to change
