The oil pressure is adjusted by dedicated valves and the timing of each cam is dynamically controlled by a sensor located in the cam covers."
The question is what if for some reason the sensor fail or what if i remove the sensor will the engine still run ?!

the cam cam be positioned between two end points. it can't physically move beyond the end points. so if it becomes set at some timing that may not desired for the rpm or load, it's still in the allowable range and will run mostly the same.

I have no idea if the engine will run or not, however to determine if the engine will run, I suggest you unplug the sensor and try. The let us know how you go.

Notwithstanding, if the engine does run (which is a reasonable possibility), the ECU will have no cam position data and therefore it will likely enter a "Limp-Home" mode meaning you will be severely restricted in performance until a new sensor is attached.
