Timing Chain parts list check

I am getting geared up to do the timing chain and associated parts. I have a 2011 2.2 l . I want a good parts list and I also have a few questions before I start ordering. Cloyes 9-4201sx timing chain kit,Cloyes9-4202s Balance shaft kit, felpro timing cover gasket set tcs 46079, Water pump Gates 43529, I am also thinking to get the Havuk industries guide bolt fix ( the dormann says not compatable with 2.2l but I don't see how). Couple of questions, Should I just put a new valve cover gasket kit on it? I am figuring that I have vvt engine, Do I need new cam and crankshaft bolts?I must because they are torque to yield and I have to take them off to get the chain out :) . Should I rebuild the oil pump? The engine has 170,000 miles on her but runs really good. It just has the occasional 2 second rattle on cold start. Is there anything else that I am missing? As always thanks ! This forum has been a great help !

My Cloyes kit came with the cam bolts, but not the crankshaft bolt, I reused it.
the oil pumps last , but if it’s going to keep you up at night, Melling has a kit available.
tge valve cover gasket is reusable, be careful when prying up the cover.

You only take 1 of the cam sprockets off.

The bolts are not stretch bolts. The book says to replace them, but it also says to replace the cover bolts.

What the book actually says about torque to yield bolts in general is reuse them after inspecting for damaged or dirty thread on both sides.

As to water pumps; some have plastic impellers some have metal. Some have vane type impellers some have cage type impellers. The OE is a metal cage type. Your choice. You do need new O-rings and gaskets for the pump and tube, some come with.

After these comment I think it would be better to ditch the plastic impellor Gates pump, spend the extra 12 bucks and get a remanufactured CARDONE SELECT5513138 ? With the kits I should get the bolts that I need. If using the old oil pump would let OldBlue sleep at night I should be sleeping like a baby :) Thanks again guys ! If you notice anything else That I am missing please post it as I am going to order tonight. Right now I gotta go pick up the AC delco plugs that I picked up for $23 out the door.

I got the delco irradium 41-103 ( I think that is the number they are out in the garage). I have been trying to put all the best parts on that you guys that have done this before recommend.

Good now don’t even think about checking the gap , those tiny whiskers break off very easily.
Double check the connections at the coils and the fuel injectors, make sure there is a good connection.

Cool thanks ! I will probably wait until I do the chain but, I had a coupon for ten bucks off of 30 or more so I got them. Air filter is also waiting on the shelf. I should be digging into the chain project next weekend. After that it looks like a slight leak from the Trans seal where the cv joint goes in (just very slight wetness) . I will fix that, trans filter and fill. Change out the dexcool and all the mechanical should be checked and up to date. Then just a few nicks that need touching up. Then the old lady will want it and I will have to find one for me :)
