That's definitely plausible. Still seems a bit too drastic for VANOS and a small pressurized oil leak, unless you've exaggerated how violent the problem is.

More violent stuttering with no codes makes me think a sensor issue like a MAF.

Nah, if the grade of the hill is right and you're in the right RPM range, it feels pretty bad. Since Sunnyvale is hill-less, we were using the 101 overpass as a hill. We managed to get it to do it a couple times but not as severely as it does it has done it on 17. Kalim was my witness.

Same, but I could only be so discrete when my back faces the door and I'm right next to the boss's office.
