Changing out FSI timing chain.....loaner tools

I believe it maybe a good idea to change out the timing chain and tensioner. Does anyone here have the proper tools, willing to loan out or rent. I hate to buy a one time use tool and the cheap ones seem dicey at best.

FSI or TSI? FSIs have timing belts if I understand correctly. I have everything needed for the TSI chain replacement, but I'm not sure if the tools are the same for TSIs and FSIs (mine is a TSI with the timing chain). I'm here in the Raleigh area, shoot me a pm if you're interested or have any questions. I did this job about a year ago, and it's time consuming but otherwise not unreasonably difficult.

TSI tools are not the same as what is needed for the FSI drive chain & tensioner on the left side of head which is opposite of the timing belt.
