You've got both. The timing chain goes around the timing gears.

Ah, the gear drive is more accurate over the long haul because chains tend to stretch as they age. But, it's more expensive - it's louder - and doesn't really increase horsepower.

A gear drive takes more horsepower to run and transmitts harmonics from the crank to the valvetrain thru the camshaft. Stick with a chain or if you have too much money, get a belt drive.

My daily driver has 16 cylinders and 4400hp @ 1000 rpm....

you have belt driven, chain driven, and gear driven. belt driven ive heard is for the most part reliable. gear driven you can get in a loud or quiet kit but highly expensive even tho effective. chain driven if effiective up to the time the chain gets streched and worn because then you got problems. so isn't much of a difference.
