Made it 2500K now. Cam position fault bank 2 just came on. Guess I'll be trying the "shock therapy". If not at least I have a parts engine.

The 'shock therapy' is a good deal, and frequently works ----- until you find one of the 4 solenoids that is obviously stuck - no 'click'.

At that point, it is not much more work to pull the valve cover and remove the offending solenoid for a cleaning & flush of the bore.

Did this once w. success, described herehttp://www.w8forum.dk/forum_posts.asp?TID=5457&KW=&title=camshaft-adjuster--p0021-fix-success

So far the problem has not come back. It cleared itself the next time I started it, so I reset the codes. I imagine it will come back eventually.

Jinxed it. Last week I was thinking how wonderful this car has been!   My son took it to work Saturday and prompty brought it back with a plume of smoke in trail.    It looked like something catastrophic let go inside! Turns out one of the injectors stuck wide open. Good thing I have a parts engine laying around. They were seriously stuck in the head.   Almost didn't think it was going to come out in 1 piece!   Running like a champ again.

Not going to answer that question in fear they might be listening.
