Question DTC issues

Hey everyone,
I just recently got my 06 rev-up Z back from the mechanic, and one of the things I had him fix was the Timing Chain, because I am at 91k. On my way home she threw DTC's P0011 & P0021.. after fighting with the mech about it, I decided that the parts that should fix the issue aren't that expensive... So I researched what was needed, and ordered 2x angle plug cam sensors, 2x straight plug cam sensors, 1x crank sensor, and L+R Variable Valve solenoids.

Now after changing all those out.. it still gives me P0021 as confirmed, and P0011 as pending. Can someone give me some other options that it could be please?

If he got the primary timing chain a tooth off, it would throw those codes. If it never threw those codes before the job, there's a good possibility that's what happened. I did it to myself, once, doing chains on a VQ40DE.

I will have him check the timing chain... and no, my car never threw a single DTC code until this incident. The only lights i had on my dash before was ABS & Brake, which came on after getting a couple used tires that were 55-R18, not the 45-R18... and on the drive home the lights came on, and got ABS code C1126 for the Right Rear Actuator Solenoid... i have replaced the rear wheel sensors, and reset the code... no avail.. abd & brake lights turn on as soon as my tires make 1 full rotation after starting the car.

As for the p0021 & P0011... Take it back and have mechanic check the timing chain to see if it's off by a tooth or 2?

Would this cause the engine to smoke out of the exhaust at higher speeds? I noticed a little smoke when I first got the car back.. and wanted to see if the way it ran felt differently, but at lower & standard driving speeds I see no smoke.
