Thats right my bad so many cars are belt driven I didn't even think about the Quad being chain driven. Ok has the head been shaved and if so how much? If the head has been shaved to far then you need a head shim this will bring the head back to the factory height and everything will run as it should. Now on the timing chain are you buying the chain and gear seperately or in a kit form. I recomend a kit so all it a matched set. If the cams are binding then the head has been gaulded from lack of oil which would show by being discolored usually a bluish color. The different cogs only relate to timing belts not chains so this is not a problem here.
Here is something interesting. Just so you know I am ASE Certified as a mechanic and as a Parts Pro so this is stuff I think about as I try to help customers at work when stuff goes weird like this. What is the production date of you car and what is the 8th digit of the vin? If you are on a production split where some parts on your car are from 94 model year (this is more common then you think) then there is a second timing set available. So what I am saying is if you are buying this the timing in seperate pieces then you may be getting the wrong chain or gears. If you give the part numbers I can check it at work too with all the other needed info and get you a part number so go with. Get back to me and we will go from there.
