jaykay, thinking out the box here......
If you are still concerned with your startup noise (as per your posts earlier this month) have you considered installing a dashboard "no start" switch to, for example, the fuel pump where the starter motor turns the engine for a few seconds to build up oil pressure but the engine does not fire. It would only take 4-5 seconds on the starter motor to to build up enough oil pressure to pump up the tensioners - then you could flip the switch to allow the engine to start as normal.
I don't know the ramifications with the Bosch ECU using this method, but surely it couldn't be that difficult.......
It may just work untill you can get the chain tensioner overhaul in place.
2001 Boxster S (triple black). Sleeping easier with LN Engineering/Flat 6 IMS upgrade, low temp thermostat & underspeed pulley.
2001 MV Agusta F4.
