He did. First post.

The 16 is the table... and is probably "1b"..but you actually need to use 18. (yeah, known issue)

First code is the exhaust vanos control (due to the bad CPS, in my opinion)
Second code is actually 0A... this is the exhaust CPS cyl 5-8
Third I am not sure of, might be the ebox fan.

The first two are causing the driveability issues. Just replace the camshaft position sensor and see what comes back
Keep it as simple as possible...but no simpler.
