Yes was there previous to repairs chain was extremely loose. Tried doing chain replacement teach in process . 3 of the 4 cams read about .5°-1.1° difference while the bank 1 intake cam is giving a -1476.01 difference. Could this be a actual camshaft issue?

Just to let you guys know that the issue was the camshaft. The reluctor wheel had spun causing the code
