But, try to go fast or hook up a decent load and start some real towing and you likely will experience disappointing power and overheating. This and other performance tests have proven that the 6. The stock chain drive timing set will last many thousands of miles but will go bad in time requiring a replacement, has several degrees of timing slop to begin with and that slop increases over time causing a timing variance.
