Yes to timing chain

The Element has a timing chain. It was great to get to 100K and not have to spend money/time on replacing a timing belt. By the way, there are more differences between the SC and EX besides the dash. SC has a different/better center console, is lower by 1 inch, has a stiffer suspension, larger tires, carpeted floor. 2007/2008 are great years to buy because this was the year Honda did a refresh on the Element.
