Crazy. Might have been over 240whp if that would have been lined up correctly
I had completely forgotten that I had cross-posted over there. Nice find.

Based on what I know now of VANOS movement, I don't know if the splines being in the 100% correct position would make any more power. If your peak power was made with the VANOS against the stop, then yes...maybe....but I don't think that is the case for any of us. The cam position sensors still allow the DME to place the cams where they should be with VANOS.

The area I noticed the biggest change with the cam timing being wrong was at idle and part throttle.....
