    Arent vz and vy the same body?? Why would the vy be lighter? Alloytech timing chain will stretch and get a rattle and eventually cause problems after about 100,000, ecos are way more reliable (Fact)

    No there really not, alloytech will last half the time of an eco, maybe the alloy are faster but the timing chain will stretch and stuff up quickly

    All im sayin is you shouldnt have to replace a timing chain after 100,000, ive had a vs and its done over 300,000 and havent replaced any seals, dose not leak a drop
