You took your rocker off? I hope you meant valve cover. And yes, its ok to remove the guide. Nissan stopped installing them in the SRs here from '98 and up, IIRC.

Yes, you'll be fine if you replace the tensioner and remove the guide.

The guide I'm talking about removing is the top one, by the cams. Just FYI.

I don't know if you can remove the other ones and run the car safely, but I do know that the one by the cams does cause the chain to rattle.

I was gonna say - there is no way that part is 70 somethin bucks. I wouldnt suggest removing any other ones, unless you know what the hell your doing/getting yourself into.

Ever notice that the SR20's that came with this part from the factory have the higher redlines?

I Think Nissan knows something we don't.

Did the 94-96 G20s have them? If they did, maybe I see the picture, and it ain't a good one either!

On a related note, if you stuff a rag to prevent stuff from falling into the spark plug holes, don't forget the rocker cover nut between cylinders 2 & 3.
