The cam syncronizer goes into the hole in the block a distributor used to go in on older motors. It serves 2 purposes. Mechanically it provides a link from the camshaft gear to the oil pump, the bottom of the shaft is a hex to drive the pump. Electronically it gives data to the computer telling it where the camshaft is.
