Plus you dont need to touch them when doing the work you described. Main chain tensioner will almost never go bad as its a simple threaded piece and secondary tensioner may break/go bad only if you let it loose (ex. while changing cams)
Thanks for the info!

I pray that it's just the vanos seals then. I got the seals on their way, should be here within the next few days. Got a new vanos gasket as well as a new VCG that I'll want to put in at the same time. Is there anything else I'm forgetting or that should be worth doing while it's opened up?
