Do F1 or Indy cars have horns?  I have never heard them use them and you would think those guys would use them if they had them.

The timing chain is the weak link on all chain driven 2.0L engines.  I am not sure of there is an available aftermarket one that is stronger, but I was not aware of one for the LNF. 

AFAIK there is no set up to convert the timing chain to duplex (which never fail and re on all of my old British stuff, but hey, GM must have saved a couple of ounces and dollars going with simplex, right?)

For one thing, there may not be clearance in the timing case for wider sprockets.
