I think it would be very difficult. Your cam deviations are a good indicator.

Not possible.

8.6 would indicate worn ramps. You would probably get a code before too long.

Usually around 12 degrees.

Wouldn't the deviations be a result of numerous points of wear; the most significant being vario cam tensioner/phasing pads. These are actuated into the chain for most of the rev range.
