Default Long term issues

I'm sure most of you on here have seen or heard about the skunk2 cams having a chain slap. It is said that an upgraded tensioner will combat this problem resulting in a smooth chain cycle. With this thought in mind, how well does the oem tensioner hold up against springs with a high seat pressure? Also was wondering about longevity issues concerning titanium retainers. At what point does do you need to worry about tensioner failures or chain stretch (valve train wise)? Last question, what's the biggest bore anyone has done on stock sleeves for and all motor build that has proved to br reliable. Answers to any of these are appreciated

Chain slap


Reliable as in OEM? Depends on how you built it.
You can go up to 88mm no prob, and still have some meat on the walls to go up to 89 if you need.
