Ok i've asked about this when my car was at 160k, and seems everyone "mechanics" said that timing chains on falcons last a long time ie over 300k. It's timing belts in cars like Camry's that need to be replaced every 100k.
Now at 200k my car is still running fine but i am getting abit of clattery noises at startup and when the weather is hot.
Perhaps it's timing chain and guides.
