  1. Replaced both cam adjuster solenoids, both valve lift solenoids, adjusted camshaft timing so that both relucter wheels were at the same angle....no more P0016. No DTCs at all.
  2. Not sure if this thread is dead or not but just wanted to add that I too have been dealing with a P0016 on my MY09 GTS. 100k miles exactly on the clock. After doing a lot of research and consulting with techs and specialists, this weekend I’m going to reset the timing for both banks and change all the timing and valve lift actuator solenoids. I’ve already changed both cam and crank sensors. I had even bridged the cam position sensors together to only read from Bank 2 and instead of P0016, I got P0172 for valve lift control, as well as Misfire Cyl 3. I think those codes were hiding as a P0016 code as the ECU just generically “diagnosed” the engine’s roughness. After everything is completed, I will report back with my results.
