WTB rent or borrow P253 tool

I checked the camshaft deviation and got
bank #1 - 8.17
bank#2 -3.45.
It's a 2001 base with 45,000 miles, well cared for, no leaks, runs great. I plan on pulling the sump this year and change the ramps later. Planning on diy in the car.

I don't know if this is a worthwhile alternative, but I found it while researching the same subject.

Maybe someone on here can provide feedback on this tool.

Not the tool I need. It must hold both cams while removing the covers. It also maintains correct timing.
I'll see if I can post a picture of it.

With your bank#1 deviation I would not drive the car until that is corrected, otherwise your next move may be pulling the engine!

A better question would be "How did he obtain those values?" We regularly see cars that the owners claim big deviation values, yet when we take the car out for a 20 min. drive to make sure it is fully warmed up, we see nominal values....

I read everything I could find about deviation, varicam, and 5 chain. I think I'm a few degrees from a CEL. I don't put many miles on it and my oil filter was clean last year. It runs so strong and smooth it's hard to believe that it's ready to go bad.
