My best guess is that intermediate levers are worn.. I have checked almost everything else.. Oil pump is another guess but its so expensive that i didn't want to change it.

Im losing my mind.. have changed too many parts.. Did you drive limits to valvetronic after excentric shaft was out? and you didn't have any symptons before shaft were taken off?
