Are you absolutely sure that the timing is correct? Did you leave something loose such as an electrical connector or an air intake tube?

I believe the timing is correct, I don't think I'm missing any tubes, vacuum hoses, or electrical connections. The car starts easy but with higher RPM's it runs smoother, but when you take your foot off the throttle it's as though you turned off the key.

It IS possible that the cam timing is one tooth off, but it could be something else.

Thanks a lot for answering.

    I've changed the crank shaft sensor, the coil pack, the ECU fuse, and the electronic control module and it still won't crank. Even replaced the battery.

    When I turn my key to the "ON" position, my check engine, battery and oil lights stay on; engine is trying to "turn over" but car will not start. What might be the problem?
