I can disconnect the vacuum line to the control valve and see if any change on cold start. The only thing I am aware of wrong with the 2nd air system is that the pump bearings are making some noise but it is moving air.

Add the can to your oil when the engine is at about 1/4 temp, then go drive arround town for about 20 min, stop and go driving is the best because it will make the VANOS unit work the most, then drain the oil and change the filter and refill with your standard 10-30 oil.
