If its chain guides, then yes...it is expensive and timely. If its just the tensioner, that can be found at EAC for about $60. Takes less then 30min to replace. There was a post here a couple of days ago that showed how to do it. If its just your tensioner, you only get a little chain rattle at start, and as soon as the tensioner gets some oil pressure built up it stops....about 5sec or so. Its hard to tell from the video, but that sounds like a bad exhuast leak.
