Man RamTech, you really know how to start some worrying with this one. But my honest feelings about this rumor is this..........Was it really the fault of the tensioner or was it the fault of the operator's maintenance habits. Low to no oil pressure to the cam chain tensioner sounds more like the path to this failure. Because I really think we'd have a whole batch of locked up, tooth skippin', Hemi's by now. Especially with the one's nearing 100K bud. Seriously though, you think if our 345's fail, we can opt for the 392 installed instead?
