there both good, and ill tell u this much only cause i know what goes at skunk2 since im there so much and know ppl there. theres isnt an OEM modded one. its just like the hybrid one. redesigned and made with there own parts. thats y the teeth last unlike the stock one. the TODA ons an OEM one with a pin and stiffer spring.

ur once choice for right now is the hybrid/toda or chunky from k20a.org. the skunk2 ones on back order and been on back order for a while now and theres no word on when itll be in stock.

heres his thread, read up on it ull get a lot of info and understad y the the chaine tensioner fails to begin with.
http://www.k20a.org/forum/showthread.php?t=28038

and word of advice if ur broke go with the chunky one, but if u have cash to spend then go with hybrid. if ur only going to a stage 2 cam u can run the OEM one just replace with a new one when u do ur cams itll last u for a while. plus u can hear it once its starting to go out. ive had blueprint stage2s for a lil over 2 years and i think i just chaged it out like 10k ago and befor that maybe like 30k.
