    code p1800 and p1600

    loren we got these codes with durametric and i call them they said that the codes are obd2 codes the story is that the engine came to us in boxes we put it together got it running last week the right side of the engine was together so we time the engine with dial indicators we are thinking that the timing is off we were monitoring the camshaft angle at idle and we saw 10 degrees on the right side and 8 degrees on the left side we will be doing some more testing today where can we get specs on the variocam plus what is the factory specs at idle ,off idle and full throttle this way we can compare and see what is wrong thanks in advance
