it's posted in one of the other threads here, I'm sure someone will find it and post it up for you shortly.
It's in that thread man. New part # 1140A073. Apparently the part is so new that dealerships don't recognize that part # yet. But whenever guys got new chains, it had that part # on the box.Ive been following that thread, but they make no mention of an updated chain with a new part number. My friend told me he will look into it when he goes back to work on Monday, if I get a new part number ill post it here.
I just spent some time talking with some dealerships about this part number situation...
More info on the part numbers for anyone ordering a chain:
MN183891 is the original chain. Not only that, but it seems that most dealerships you call will order this part by default because it's what shows up in their inventory database and they will say there's no record of that part having been superceded (recently updated).
1140A073 is the new chain. If you give a dealership this number, they will not find it in their inventory database (at least the ones I talked to didn't). They had to go look this up in the actual Mitsubishi parts catalog upon being provided with the last 8 of the VIN#. The new chain is also about 20-30 bucks more expensive (list $134.14)
This is how:I was talking to MAP. They said not only was the chain changed in the newer motors but how the chain is lubricated was also changed. How, I don't know
Just would like to double check if I order this part now, I will get new version of chain?It's in that thread man. New part # 1140A073. Apparently the part is so new that dealerships don't recognize that part # yet. But whenever guys got new chains, it had that part # on the box.
Yeah I would do just that, the chains from the pre 2010 models are stretching and causing alot of damage, that's why I never bounce off the rev limiter, I don't use the two step launch and I check the oil at least twice a week as its rumored it could be down to poor lubrication, although Irmerm's chain stretched through wear and usage, one day it was driving fine...the next day it wouldn't even start.i take it if i was to install camshafts on my car, this would be a good time to buy the new timing chain and slap that bad boy on as well?
