Switch back to standard timing belt. Noisy and prone to failure of the gears themselves and engine components.

Heard one running once, loudest thing I ever heard, akin to a tin bucket full of bolts being shaken hard.
Terrible noise, truly horrible. If you buy it convert back to a belt. They're reliable if you follow the servicing schedule.

I will look for another engine the guy wants a premium for it as it has the Zeus kit. I have not seen one on a 200 TDI for a very long time.
