I got a PCI brand kit from ebay when I rebuilt my motor. I dont remember the seller but just search "4.7 timing" I would also verify the part number from PCI's site to make sure your getting the right one. The parts were the same if not better than stock. There are two versions of most timing kits for the 4.7L with or with out the sprockets that bolt to the cam. If your sprockets are not damaged then i would just get the kit with out and save about $100. I personally got new sprockets also only because of the type of build I was doing

You'll need a special tool to press the harmonic balancer back on. I'll sell you one for $40 shipped.

Or rent the tool from airram for $15 a week.

Also, check your tensioners and everything, it is a good time to replace them if anything looks worn. My had a pretty good groove in them after 160,000 miles.

This is the link to the album I created when I was doing my 4.7L swap. Maybe some of the photos will help you, lots of the timing chains.
