Cam Timing off 2002 Boxster S

Took out cams, replaced variocam adjuster rails, reinstalled cams bank 1 then bank2.

Running the car after the repair, bank1 is off -7 degrees, bank2 is perfect. Car idles great though.

I counted the teeth on both banks exactly the same. i thought i got it right, but iím suspecting the intake cam bank 1 is 1 tooth off. Will try to re-time bank 1 saturday or sunday, if timing tool fits in fine, then it has to be one tooth off.

I guess my question is if the cam tool fits, but intake is off, is there any other explanation? Iím assuming 7 degrees would be an obvoious deviation of the exhaust cam slot from parallel, like not even close. If it just bad cam timing it should be very obvious?

2002 Boxster S, prepared for SCCA STR Autocross class.
