The intermediate sprocket can easily get damaged if you let your timing chain maintenance go for too long. The teeth can get nicked off as the timing attempts to jump teeth. Replace your camshaft sprockets with one from ECS Tuning.
ECS Tuning has everything that you need to restore the performance to your VR6. By replacing damaged intermediate sprockets, your new timing chains and tensioners will last longer. With as large as a timing chain job is, don't take a chance on having to do it over again.
This is the 32 tooth sprocket that runs both the upper and lower timing chains on both the 12V and 24V.
