Default First start up on new motor.. Minor issues!

That's my LV shot.. I did port the TGVS so I know that's fixable, btw how do I get rid of that code?, and the OCV code is due to me snapping the connector off the solenoid and trying to solder it back up to work again which obviously was a major fail.

1. Is the dealer the only place to buy a new OCV solenoid? Which is apparently AKA as the AVCS solenoid?
2. I'm pretty sure the cam timing code is due to the OCV, can someone else confirm this?
3. The car should be running very rich due to the tune I had while I had a broken piston where we tried giving more fuel before knowing about it.. Can someone show me or point me in the right direction as to how to tune it down myself? I have another flurry of mods coming up after break in so I don't want to waste my tune money now..
4. Can I let the car run/idle with this going on?

Thanks for the help!
