No. A cam phaser job just replaces the broken part with another part exactly like it.If you have a cam phaser repair now, is the engine updated to the current production engines?
No. It’s an oil flow problem.I really question if the head is the fix. All cars with this type variable cam phaser system from Japanese to German use a pin that locks the phasers when the engine turns off and there’s no oil pressure. On cranking, the pin is sprung loaded and locks the sprocket to not let it wind back and push the oil out and holds the phaser where it needs to be. The Ford sprockets that are noisy all have damaged pins and it looks like a very weak stamped steel pin that’s not very strong as well as the area the pin locks into. Until they update that, you can supply all the oil you want to the phaser but all you’ll do is lessen the time it rattles but the problem is still there. I think they need to get the phaser pin issue sorted out and wonder if the late 2020’s have a different style?
Thank you sir. By the way, I do believe that there is an oil flow issue in these heads.That’s a good thought to try and see when/if the part number changes. I will see what I can find. Also, the mega cap part number should be changed.
Yes I have found blipping the throttle will cause enough clattering to make me cringe. Unfortunately.Thank you sir. By the way, I do believe that there is an oil flow issue in these heads.
On mine, if I rev the engine at idle couple of times pretty fast, there is a noticeable valve clatter. I attributed it to noisy valve lifters, until I realized that these engines have no hydraulic lifters
Try it on yours, give it couple of fast throttle blips and listen carefully right in between the blips,,, you may hear what I am talking about.

A lot of what you are hearing when you do that is the turbo wastegates chattering, I believe.
The mechanical linkage and pivot point hardware is crap on these wastegates and they have so much play in them that they chatter a lot even when you aren’t blipping the throttle, but are especially noticeable when you do.
