With a 2005+ engine you turn the tensioner CW with the allen wrench to give it tension. First turn CCW to relieve tension, turn it CW past the middle to give tension, then go back to middle and tighten the center bolt to 20nm.
I did the PCV job in mid January along with a new MAF, upstream O2 sensor, and ETM. Just finished the Timing kit, water pump, thermostat, flushed cooling system, oil pump kit, dropped & cleaned oil sump, and installed new transmission mount this week.
