its been well over a month since my car had the service visit to replace the cam actuator. I thought i would give some follow up. Mostly things are better and normal. the engine still surges a bit at times, but there has only been one episode when it was really bad - i was driving at about 40 mph in 4th or 5th gear going up a hill and it began surging. (rpms jumping up and down and car jumping back and forth at speed). i stayed on the throttle at the same part throttle and after about 5 seconds it came out of it on its own. Before the service visit, it would stay for 15-30 seconds and I couldnt stay on the throttle the same way. So, so far, much improved but not perfect. not sure if currently this is normal for this engine or if still off a bit.
