exhaust vanos help!

hey guys;
everytime getting the limp mode and scanning my car with the GT1 getting the code " 2A87 VANOS exhaust- stiff, jammed mechanically " it happens only when i drive with high speed and suddenly pushing the brakes, i get the half engine light popped up.... the worst part is that i got the exhaust vanos part changed, i changed many oil types and markets and still nothing changed, chain tension is exact, oil level is ok, both solenoid was replaced, Cam sensor is ok, i did everything related with the exhaust vanos repair troubleshooting, and i keep getting the vanos exhaust error on the GT1.... i was reading arround and there was a thread about rare camshaft issues can cause this, so i was wondering if this was my case

any help guys?
