A 5w50 is also good. And of course, install our E2-X catchcan system with cleanside to keep that oil clean as possible, and while you have the intake manifold off, search for the intake valve cleaning threads on here and do the same. You wont believe the difference it makes to get 15-20 HP back.

Is an oil that thick in viscosity good though? I thought the whole point in using an oil that's thin was for the components in the VVT system.

0w30,40 or 5w50 oil are a better choice than the 5w30 instruction manual?

Thanks guys for all the advice. I tore into it last night. Power steering pump makes the one bolt a little bit of a pain. Lot of electronics on these! I will take the timing cover off tomorrow morning. It’s all ready. I was surprised that the top two chains weren’t that loose? Haven’t seen the bottom one yet. I did get the solenoids to change out.
Back at it tomorrow.

Done!
Change the oil tomorrow and I should be good. Probably need to get a new harmonic pulley bolt?

Id say yes to the bolt. I replaced mine for my timing replacement.
