What he says is true, the painless way to go about it is to swap the short/semi long block and bolt on your 328 periphery and be done with it.

Exactly what I will be doing with mine in the coming...

Could be many things, likely possibilities are idle air control motor being dirty/broken, vacuum leaks (check your air intake boots), fouled spark plugs, or failed sensors.

I never said it would work fine, I honestly don't think the car would run well enough to limp it to the dyno facility. All I wanted to see is what the car would do at WOT.

Yes it sounds different, a little more racey, a little bit more rasp to the exhaust note. My idle is hard to say since I have a 1000 rpm idle as part of my tune. It is smooth at that speed.

Yes the cams will rotate, that is how the vanos adjusts their position, but it doesn't change their static set timing. If all you did was remove the cups, the timing is not your problem.
