Recently I replace the Variocam Ramps on my 2002 boxster S.
Reassembly went well but I have a timing problem for the cams afterwards, trying to figure out the fix.
Bank one at Idle actual cam angle is about 6, deviation is blank.
Once the car warms up to 180, the actual angle goes to close to zero, and the deviation is about 5 to 6.
Bank 2 is as you would expect, actual angle around zero at cold idle, deviation around zero at warm idle.
My recollection is that before disassembly the Durametric showed that actual angle at idle when cold was close to zero On bank one.
I read that actual angle may not represent what I think it does, I read somewhere that it represents the amount of Variocam influence on the cams, not the actual timing.
Can someone possibly explain what the actual angle means? Bonus points if someone can explain to me what exactly is wrong with my car, my best guess is either I have a bad variocam actuator problem or I assembled things with intake cam one tooth off.
