What’s up everyone.. I’m about to modify my phaser on the QR25DE because all QR owners already know about all the issues of this motor. It’s not oil psi, it’s not the tensioner, it’s not the solenoid.... these are all misconceptions! I personally saw the phaser SHIFTING from retard to advance and make the SAME tick sound as it did so while I turned the crank with a wrench. No oil pressure because I’m using a wrench ok and my TENSIONER’S plunger is modified so that it cannot be pushed back into its housing by chain slack so that possibility was resolved way before this subject matter. Everything is brand new and freshly built and NOTE: the (new) phaser is aftermarket so now I have discrepancy because I should have bought an oem phaser. The motor is a 20psi turbo build and we also have to consider the upgraded valve springs which are way stiffer than the oem springs and this will also put stress on the phaser’s locking pin because the pin has to hold the tension of the harder valve springs which make the cam harder to rotate. I need a professional’s advice as to will a NEW OEM phaser gear handle this kind of tension and if not, is there anything anyone has done besides priming the engine for oil psi? Also what’s your experience with an aftermarket phaser? I have a few ideas I’m about to try on the phaser gear but I want to know YOUR thoughts and experience first!
