Wow. You sure you were leaking down into the case? you can put oil on the back of the valves to look for bubbles. When you set the timing off the plates on a 996 you swing the adjust all the way left (I will double check that) then tighten . TDC with a chain tension tool in then turn crank 360 and do bank two. I do not use the stomski tool on the turbo cam only the factory plates. You need help/info email me at [email protected]

100% it was leaking down into the case. I bubble checked the valves and they are perfect. I put some oil in there and it sealed better before it blew all the oil down. The cylinder was fine, I checked it with a bore gauge also. It should be good now with the new rings. I set the timing to 110/110 with the Stomski. With the variocam I just set them to the top of the dwell at each side of the range, which was 93 on one end and 127 on the other. This should do it, the end slots in the cams at TDC and full left are at the exact same angles as the pictures of the plates. It was a pain to get them exactly how I wanted though.

Some have asked for updates. I think I have my issues resolved. I fixed the leak down cylinder and I reset my cams. I double checked my work this time so my settings should be perfect. It is difficult to set the variocam intake cams with the dials but I was able to do it. The variocam swings about 34 degrees, so what you do is set it at the top of the dwell to one stop or the other at 93 or 127. Set back at 110 and see how the dials look and make fine adjustments as needed. You can see that my angles look the same as the plates above, though this is approximate I think it is a reasonable double check. Two of the plates are square so no worries there. I should be able to move quickly now that this is done.
