Redline occurring at 4500 rpm is that engine is in limp mode. The code means that a VVT error of greater than 5 deg for over 2.5 second has occurred at least twice. So the problem is on the Exhaust Cam Bank 1 (towards rear of car).
Shop Manual gives 4 possible failures:
Static valve timing is incorrect
VVT Camshaft Actuator failed
VVT Control Valve stuck Open or Closed
VVT Control Valve filter
If it was a sensor failure then you should also get Error code P0017 which occurs if Cam is more than 16 deg out of phase.
