Camshaft sensor is in the timing cover top left side when looking that the engine. The crank sensor is by the back of the block. Oil control valve?

Too many mods to list for each, so let's just say a lot was done over the years.

Oil control valve has something to do with the mds system

Ah....The MDS solenoids are under the intake manifold and the valve you speak of is under the intake manifold as well, back of the timing cover at the top.

Are you getting a code or what are you trying to achieve?

P0016 code. Just saw the solenoid. Looks like a tough one. Any tricks or does the intake manifold have to come off?

Has to come off, (10) bolts and it'll come off. You shouldn't need to disconnect the fuel line. Should be able to move it out of the way enough to get to it.
