There's a write up on that website under the procedure section. Doesn't look to hard just tedious.

I've been wondering when these were going to come out. My SES light came on a couple of months ago and it was a DTC P0011, "A" Camshaft Position - Timing Over-Advanced or System Performance (Bank 1). I changed the CPS and that did not fix the problem. I'm going to need to spend some $$$ at Beisan in the near future...

BTW, here is what Raj saying about reliability of his solution:
Quote:
Regarding the i6 single and double vanos seals, we now have many thousands of installs and none have failed. Some owners have 200+k miles on them. When I checked the seals last it seemed there was no Teflon wear and the O-rings were in excellent condition. I expect these seals will last the life of the car.
Regarding the M62TU seals, one of the initial beta testers now has 17k miles on the car and all is well. I'm trying to get these seals to inspect. The Teflon and O-ring materials used on the M62TU seal are the same as the i6 seals. I expect we will have the same great results.
The M62TU repair procedure introduction explains the OEM failure and the Beisan solution.
Beta testers have had great results.
