Default Best price on a DOHC OEM hydraulic tensioner?

I'm looking for a decent price on a hydraulic tensioner, but I'm not sure what vendors would be able to get it to me quickly for a reasonable price. I placed an order a couple months ago through Ninja performance, but I'm assuming due to Chris' health orders are starting to stack up again. I'm going to have to cancel due to time restrictions that just popped up for me. 3SX prices everything out the roof and that's the only other vendor I'm aware of that carries it. $120 was the listed price on Ninja Performance.

Edit: Saw some people recommending the ITM tensioners also. Since I've got to re-order anyway would an ITM tensioner + washer mod be a safe bet? On Rock Auto they have ITM and Cloyes tensioners available as the only brands that look somewhat legit. Anyone have experience with a Cloyes tensioner?

Why not just order it from Cherry Hill Mitsubishi? They have supported this group for a long time with good prices on OEM parts.

Are there generally decent shipping times from them?

A lot of times the order will go out the same day if you order early enough in the day and they have the part(s) in stock.

ITM is just a re-boxer... Unless you know where they get a particular part, I'd consider it anecdotal evidence at best. Cloyes used to be one of the best, I think they've gone to outsourcing a lot of stuff they can't do in house... I had a chain tensioner from them fail in a Ford Escape a couple months ago after only 40K. The original it replaced was still working at 170K...

OE is the best option, and I second Cherry Hill.
