I guess at $350 its worth a shot to see if it will fix your problem. If it does then it was a relatively cheap fix which we can all appreciate

How long after you replaced bolts did your vanos go downhill?

It was broken before I changed the bolts, first I thought that changing the bolts will fix the problem

You could tell once you got into it that it wasnt the bolts right?

Yes, it's pretty obvious because all the bolts are in position - nothing moves or has any play.

Just making sure, Ive done them myself. Just reading into your situation, you said your vanos went and you changed bolts. I was thinking you changed bolts then later the vanos went out which in my mind would say something you did was wrong which then id say i wouldnt do the swap if i were you. But obviously youll be fine. Where did your learn the process? Its pretty easy but alot of people mis a small step that causes alot of noise and still think something is wrong with vanos.
