Just a little FYI for those of you with cams or that are going to be installing cams. I sold mine and advertised that the vanos gears were installed correctly. When I was pulling them out, I noticed that I couldn't quite get them to line up properly. I didn't think much of it at the time. Installed my OEM cams and that was that.

I decided that since I had the alignment tool in-hand, I'd go ahead and check. Exhaust cam = right on the money. Intake cam.... off a few degrees.

You can see what I'm talking about here:

These happen to be the my cams, so I know they've been red-loctited.

Crazy. Might have been over 240whp if that would have been lined up correctly
