The 'proper' oil in my van always makes it sound like a bag of nails... (2007 2.5 BNZ). Tha's why I run Quantum Synta 10W40. Quiet as my old T4 now!

That's an awful lot of work and expense because of a 'noisy' cam.

Check out the vacuum connections to the turbo - it could be a sensor problem or a control issue.

You need to get it on VCDS to check the fault codes as to why it's dropping into limp mode - that should point you in the right direction.

Hope this helps....
