Oil control valves for the VCT phasers. The VCT phasers themselves are the cam gears.

Basically a 3 way valve with an oil supply from sump line, oil supply to the phaser (to advance the cam) and an oil dump line back to the sump (to retard the cam).

Thanks for the answers guys :)

My best guess was that it had something to do with electronically advancing or retarding the cams...
