A shop did the new engine so I'm not sure. The intake cam gear was changed about 1k ago due to a p0011 that still won't stay gone and I can't figure out why (everything in avcs system has been replaced with brand new oem parts). What is it with avcs gears that makes the bolts nearly impossible to remove? I had no issues with the exhaust gears last time. Which tool are you talking about, the $50 ones from rally sport direct?
