If you're going to have the engine open, might as well replace those bolts or at least check them. There's only 2 major failures with this engine, the exhaust hub and the cam bolts, so I'd check both if the engine is already open.

There's a DIY on M3F that shows how to take the Vanos off using the timing tool with 2 timing locks (the tool only comes with 1, so would need to get another, I wonder if ECS sells that part individually) that looks far easier than others I've seen.
