3.89 gear question

I plan on purchasing the 3.89 gears for my 96 3.5 intrep but i dont know wether if i have the double chain or one in the trans. Would anybody here know about that? On the how to thread for the 3.89 gear installation,it stated that i needed: #4659834,#4659831 and do i really need this:#4659190. Also,at idle,there is a thump sound in the front on the passenger side and it seems to be coming from this device that is mounted on the air filter. When the car idles,you can hear that annoying thump sound and the 3.5's noisy lifters. Also,i plan on changing the lifters and was wondering have anyone tried to change it themselves and wether if i should take the chance to do it or take it to a shop which is what i'm actually trying to avoid.

The double chain with the 1/2 tooth offset was incorporated in the 1995 model year. Just my $0.02.

It started with the 95 model year. It could be that some late 94 models got the new setup. My 95 LHS was produced on Aug. 3, 1994 but I would expect it to have all the "improvements" (Band-Aid fixes) that were done to the 95 models. Just my $0.02.
