Unhappy P0011 code Subaru WRX 2008 stock

Intake Camshaft Timing Position Over-Advanced (Bank 1).

I have received this code several times now and the mechanics are stumped.
The car drives beautifully, no detrimental effects to the turbo or performance otherwise. Most recently, the check engine light came on 120 miles after having work done and the code reset. I was getting on the freeway in 5th gear and let the RPMs slip below 2,000 when the light came on. The vehicle occasionally will send minor vibrations while at a stop, but it's not alarming.

My WRX is an '08 with 72,000 miles and no modifications. Prior to the check engine light coming on, the timing belt was replaced and oil changed regularly. Since the P0011 code, I've had both camshaft position sensors replaced (banks 1 and 2), as well as the oil changed again.

Please advise as to what direction I should go in. Is it just a timing issue that can be resolved with the high quality tools of a dealership, or am I looking at serious maladies. Thanks!

I replaced both solenoids because the car was throwing both P0021 and P0011, which means Banks 1 and 2.

Well as of now the check engine light is not illuminated. If it does com back I'll have the AVCS sprocket examined.
