Chain tensioner install

Porsche 911 Technical Forum - Pelican Parts Technical BBS - forums.pelicanparts.com
In addition to my other projects I am currently in the middle of....exhaust swap, suspension refresh and mounts...i am taking on the task of doing the chain tensioners for the quote "piece of mind" factor.

I am very apprehensive about doing it myself as it seems everything is so critical that my four thumbs may mess something up. For guys that have done this yourself have you found it to be as daunting as it seems? Everything is out of the way and really at this point is just removing covers and inserting replacement tensioners and new lines without letting the chain loose. I'm thinking I should put all new ramps at the same time right?

Shops want too much dough for this job, but then again they have the experience doing it. I've rebuilt American engines before and have a dangerous amount of get me in trouble experience. Is this something best left for a pro or should I just do it? Everything else I've done ...turbo tie rod upgrade, valve adjustment, new oil return tubes, removing original exhaust has been relatively easy so far and very rewarding in the get know my car way.
