How do I determine chain length needed

Is there a formula for determining how many links I need? I'm putting a 10" stretch on my 02 954 and need to order a chain. Thanks in advance

Re: How do I determine chain length needed

fairly certain that once you get over 120 links, you have to buy them in 10 link increments. I believe when I strrretched my RR2, I went with 140, and had this many left over:

but... I only went +7.5", not the full (limousine) +10"

If you're interested Zack, and haven't the parts already, I'd be happy to part with the set-up off my RR3 (minus the extended brakeline) for a fair price since we've already done business
