My Roadster mod 452, is chewing up the timing chain shoe, it has basically the same engine as the 450, but it has disintegrated the 2° timing chain shoe in 6000km after engine rebuild, please help

Sounds like the "rebuild" is the issue - the people who rebuilt the engine should fix the problem. :)
Any ideas on what could be the cause, obviously happened after rebuild, and the car is at the mechanic right now

My guess is they didn't adjust the tension of the timing chain shoe correctly, but that's just my opinion. I'm no expert. :)

That sounds like a good one to me, very probable

Need new timing chain kit

OK, but make sure to get a high quality one. Some of the aftermarket kits are apparently failing soon after they are installed. Good luck. :)
