- Ebay may have some used VVT hubs, make sure you buy a hub with low mileage such as < 100K.

- New VVT hub about $250.

- Cam seals: Volvo or Corteco only.

- Consider TB kit (TB + 2 pulleys, Volvo parts or Conti only).

- Search for the post on how to replace cam seals, a bit tricky on the VVT engine.
We discussed the anatomy in the thread below:
