What are the exact codes?

Probably the solenoid solder issue. Search for Besian Systems solenoid fix.

How does the intake sound? Does t sound like there are marbles rattling in there when you rev the engine? There is a notorious problem with the bolts wearing ans hearing off. The rattling sound is the sound made as the bolts strip and start to back out.

One quick thing you could try is to pull the VANOS filter, and look for debris in the screen.
