+1 to what turbo nutters said. You're going to need to install a CF1 exhaust cam pulley and CF1 cam position sensor, re-time the engine (would be a good time to change the full belt kit) and then all should be good with that. EGR I wouldn't worry about.

Failed cam sensor on the cf1 has no effect on the running of the car. My light has been on a year now because of cam sensor failure I will sort it next cam belt change.
