Is there any chance you could measure the important points that it touches on the cam phasers ?
sure...I'll make a template on paper and measure that out for you. Can post the info tonight. But honestly, by the time I do that, you get the measurements and you make the thing, amazon would be a day away from delivering the real deal..lol. I'll help you out though and will post the measurements.

Thank you so much!! It fits on a piece of paper, perhaps you could just trace it to make the template, and then scan it if you have a scanner? Then I could just print it out and fabrication is very straightforward from there

as long as you print it to actual size, it will work...I just wouldn't want you solely relying on that to make your own...I'll include some measurements for you as a reference point

send me a pm with your email and I can send you the image and pdf directly. If you print out the image uploaded here, make sure that 1" line is actually 1" when you print it....that's your scale verification. The cam holder plate should be like 1/4" thick or so...a wrench or a thick flat stock should work just fine.

Any suggestions on getting the plug out for the camshaft locking pin? I used the right torx bit, but it stripped out and won't budge.

you mean the crankshaft locking pin? The big T45 or 50 plug, whatever it is. Should be easy enough to access and drill it out or weld a nut to it

Your right...sorry, that's what I meant..chain tensioner..the bar locks the camshafts. I'm still not sure how the pin works...it looks like the pin stays in the cylinder head when you remove it (from a video I watched), but isn't the tensioner just behind the timing chain cover?
