If you find this is consistently the case, you may be able to feed that back to the manufacturer. This means the zero zetpoint for the spool (meaning spool in the middle blocking the flow) requires more current than the OEM.

This can be the result of two things:
1. the easy one, the counter spring in the tip of the solenoid is too strong and requires excessive current to move against.
2. The coil impedance and number of windings are different than the original. This should also be an easy fix with a few more turns on the coil.


In all though, as long as the max current value doesn't exceed what the DME is programmed to allow for max, you shouldn't have a problem. This isn't part of the calibration area, but part of the program area. I have the VANOS area identified in the assembly, I'll see if I can find the max current value that's hard coded in.

You are so good, Jim, as always. Your #2 option is exactly what my manufacturer replied to me when I sent the test results back to them a few months ago. I was told the issue will be taken care of during batch production.
