If you didn't change it then it is probably fine. However I do find that usually the one thing left unchecked turns out to be the culprit. Depending on where you placed the E1 connector (stock position is under TMIC, and is accessible even with STI style TMIC) it is incredibly simple to check since you are pulling the sensor anyways.
I'm pretty confident you are dealing with a signal issue, as the system can not jump from 0-53 instantaneously or even reach 53 degrees anyways. A good example is if you swap the LH and RH signal return to the ECU; the ECU interprets the LH and RH as oscillating because the waveforms are not congruent. In response to this the car idles very poorly, and the AVCS cannot control the cam angle.
