In reply to Dirtysocks question. A really bad timing chain will make noise beyond startup, but the real key to catching it early is noise only at start-up when the oil has drained and the tensioner is relaxed. When a chain has wear then you get this start-up noise and it goes away in 2-3 seconds. If you are doubtful, ask an MB Tech about this. I went through this on a M119 engine.
