One more possibility, tho not too likely, is that you have a problem in the
ECU.  I experienced the same problem about a year ago, with a "cam position
sensor" fault pulled.  Turned out that one of the chips in my recent MTM
upgrade was bad.  The fault code was a red herring.

Took some detective work to figure it out.  Just thought I would toss it
