I still have the auto adjuster - never had any issues with it. My timing chains getting a little rattly at 120k kms, but that's hardly surprising.
Re the pinging/lugging question - I concur with the others. Cruising with little load is fine at 3k rpm or slightly below, but for any reasonable acceleration the beastie needs to be revving higher than 4-4.5k. Pinging's much more likely in hot weather, too, although higher octane does help a little.
Synthetic oil, huh? Is that the signal to start another oil thread? (And I understand there's oil in tyres, so we could roll(!) into that thread next) :D

I'd rather be riding.
