BTDT recently, my secondary tensioner pads were just as bad as yours.

As you say, very satisfying to start the engine and not hear that irritating whine! :)

I actually had a buddy of mine from Nissan do it, but it took him all of 8 hours .. then i had to bring it to him at work to relearn the computer because it was idling high at about 1k

Experienced Nissan technician takes a full day to do the job, but warranty labor (if done under warranty) pays only 6-hours. Then they wonder why they can't find enough people that want to be auto techs! I've done three of these timing chain jobs and I'm still hard pressed to get it done anywhere close to 6-hours because it takes at least an hour to clean the RTV sealant off of everything!

It took me @ 8 hours to do the actual work, spent @ 12 hours for the entire job as I tend to like to clean parts as I go, which is probably something a typical dealer tech would likely not do considering the lack of time given for the job. I worked for an independent shop some years ago so I have plenty of experience and tools. It is not that bad a job, just a lot of things to get out of the way prior to getting at the timing cover. The actual replacement of the chains/tensioner pads actually takes only a few minutes.
