The service/maintenance schedule is $12 to download, so I can't say. But usually timing chains are good for life of engine ... 420 HP, wow

Does a W12 have 1 or 2 timing chains? A W12 is two v6 engines connected into a "W" configuration.

From what I could find, it has 3. It has four camshafts, one chain from crank to a sprocket with a double roller-chain with a chain going to each side
