Timing chain replacement

Anybody know how often the timing chain is supposed to be replaced? Are there any aftermarket upgrades to the factory one or is that the only option?

I don't want to replace it, but I know that it is recommended to change timing change after a certain amount of miles. I'm just trying to find out what that maintenace schedule is. That is something I would much rather replace before it snaps.

that goes for timing belts not chains..ur chain should be just fine 4 as long as the engine is in good standing...its usually only changed wen it skips or breaks other than that our chains are pretty reliable

I can't find anything in GM service information about scheduled timing chain replacement . I would do it at 100K miles if it were me. Or at least do the tensioner . It is a pain in the ass to replace the chain thou.... GM pays 4 hour's for warranty so straight time is prolly more like 6 . While your in there might as well do the guides too ... so it can turn into a decent sized bill by the time you do guides , chain and tensioner.

Timing belts get changed every 80-100k, a timing chain should last the "life" of the engine. 200k+ miles.
