There are 2 tensioners. One is the acccessory belt tensioner. It is on the front of the engine and is not hydraulic. This is the one Speedlogix has an upgrade for.
The 2nd one is the timing belt tensioner. This is a hydraulic unit and is located behind the timing cover. Make sure of which one the deealer is talking about.
If it's the timing belt tensioner I would also change the timing belt since you will be right there. You also have to make sure you properly line up your timing marks before releasing the pin from the tensioner.
