Shops that don't recommend Carrera Tensioner Update?

When I rebuilt my engine, I sent all of my parts out to "the old master" - Neil Harvey (Performance Developments) and had him do all the machine work and and reset all of the specs/tolerances on my engine parts. Anyway, I discussed this mod with him, as I have heard about many pressure fed tensioner failers. Something that I worry about, especially since my car is daily driven. Neil rebuilt my factory hydro-tensioners (they only had about 40K on them) and didn't think I'd have any trouble. I dunno, next time I have my chain covers off, I'm tinking about doing it.
