Default timing chain or timing belt?

I have a 99 sl2 dohc 5 speed. it has 103k on it and i was wondering, does it have a timing chain or belt, and when would you recomend changing it? This car does frequently run high rpm's as it is being driven by an 18 year old with a need 4 speed!

It has a chain. I needs changed when it starts making noise. If you keep up with the oil changes and keep it filled with oil, the belt should last as long as the car.

Timing chain.
If you keep checking and topping your oil, never. The chain should outlast the car.

Word of caution, do NOT spin your front wheels. Search for DIFF PIN and you'll see why.
