Timing Belt or Chain

Does anyone know at which VIN did the engine change to being the later one with chain driven cams? And what are the other differences between the engines?

Hi Matthew,

Below are the specs from Wikipedia on the 4.2L V8 40 valve engine with the roller chain-driven double overhead camshafts. The engine codes are shown for each type.

I do not know at which VIN the engines changed from belt to chain driven, but #228 has a BHF engine code and, as indicated below, is chain driven.

4.2 V8 40v
identification
parts code prefix: 079
engine displacement & engine configuration
4,163 cubic centimetres (254.0 cu in) 90° V8 engine; 90 millimetres (3.54 in) cylinder spacing; bore x stroke: 84.5 by 92.8 millimetres (3.33 in × 3.65 in), stroke ratio: 0.91:1 - undersquare/long-stroke, 520.4 cc per cylinder
cylinder block & crankcase
homogeneous monobloc low-pressure gravity die casting hypereutectic 'Alusil' aluminium-silicon alloy (AlSi17Cu4Mg) with a closed-deck design, mechanically stripped hard silicon crystal integral liners, honed under simulated mechanical stress; five main bearings; die-forged steel crankshaft
cylinder heads & valvetrain
cast aluminium alloy, five valves per cylinder, 40 valves total; lightweight low-friction roller cam followers with automatic hydraulic valve clearance compensation, roller chain-driven double overhead camshafts
aspiration
synthetic material two-stage variable intake manifold
fuel system & engine management
two linked common rail fuel distributor rails, multi-point electronic sequential indirect fuel injection with eight intake manifold-sited fuel injectors; Bosch Motronic ME 7.1.1. electronic engine control unit (ECU); 98 RON/ROZ (93 AKI) EuroSuperPlus (premium) unleaded recommended for maximum performance and fuel economy
exhaust system
two multi-stage catalytic converters
dimensions
length: 464 millimetres (18.27 in), mass: 195 kilograms (430 lb)
DIN-rated motive power & torque outputs, ID codes

I think the change over was in 2009, so somewhere around S/N 200?

Thanks both. I was idly daydreaming about getting a Laviolette but wanted to avoid belt changes... but then I read that the later Audi V8 chain tensioners and chains can self destruct at moderate mileages too (keep a listen out when you get to 60k+ miles!). So who knows what's best!!

Today we changed the accessory belt of the chain driven BHF engine. Even though the shop manual wants you to remove the engine, Tom did do it from below with the engine in place. We had to cut an allen wrench down, because it is so tight in there, but it can be done. It was a less than 30 minute job
