    What are the single wire connectors on the front of each cylinder head? They are about a square inch in size and are related to the cam sensors? Diodes?

    If you mean these, they are the Camshaft Position Sensors.

    No..... not those ones, they are 1 wire (black) and they come from a what looks like a square peice of plastic that is attached to a bracket. Does not go into the cylinder head but they are fastened to it! Only 1 wire. Thanks though. I can't think of what they would be used for but if you unplug one or the other cam sensor and var cam servo change values so it must have to do with them. I have seen them befor but never questioned what they are for!

    OK, if only one wire to it and it is about an inch square and about 1/4" to 3/8" thick I am guessing you are talking about a Radio Ignition Interference Capacitor.
