Unless the timing chain suffered a catastrophic failure, ie broke into many pieces, you should not need to replace the cam and crank gears, the tensioner arm and tensioner. The timing chain and guide I can agree need to be replaced, but without a physical examination, you can't just say "replace all these parts". If you do let this mechanic do the work, insist on him giving you ALL the old parts. Then take them to another shop and ask their opinion. You may find the mechanic is honest, but I suspect not.
