yeah it was the tool to rotate the cam sprocket I was thinking of. They don't cost very much but the proper tool for clamping the cams themselves costs well over a hundred.

My 325 is an auto too which also kills some of the low end and torque across the range generally. Once I've recovered from the 470 worth of parts I've thrown at it in May I was planning on doing a transmission fluid drop and refill, new filter etc in the next month or so. That should help a bit.

My DISA is fine, it was one of the first things I check when I bought the car to make sure that the pin wasn't about to drop out and take out a valve. You hear a definite change in engine note at around 4K rpm that I've always assumed was the DISA cutting in but may be wrong, that may actually be the VANOS cutting in?
