Really? No difference at all for you? After the install I started to notice a lot more low end grunt and pull that continued to become more and more noticeable as the seals broke in. Now that I have about 7k on the VANOS since the rebuild, i can safely say that it made a significant difference in performance (not to mention it got rid of that god awful ZHP vanos rattle, my car legit sounded like a diesel truck!).
