I guess you meant vct, not vtc?
Is it a hard fault or can it be deleted? Seems like you may have a Vanos timing issue, not sure how you could cause that by only replacing the eccentric shaft sensor. I'd check the Vanos timing to make sure it's 100%. But you'd need a few special tools for that.
Either that or the sensor wasn't installed properly but it's a straight forward install. Make sure all wiring you disconnected is reconnected.

That doesn't really make sense.
Usually will only throw those codes for misfires.
I'd swap cylinder 5 coil with 6.
Cylinder 8 with 7. Erase faults and see what faults come back.
If the faults change you got bad coils
