    Neither, the N47 engine doesn't have them or at least not ones that fall out, it has them all on a single shaft that is part of the inlet manifold

    From swirl flaps yes, but not from the dreaded timing chain spocket issue, a bit of a headache on the N47 engine all the way to 2010! Google it!
