I'm going to assume you have the basics covered then as you stated earlier...good fuel and spark....beyond that it is base engine............. you verifed the timing with the front cover off? I know it's a no-brainer just want to make sure....which cam phasers are installed , the ones marked L and R ? You counted the links? Single link on the dot (crank), split link on the appropiate side (cam)? How about compression? Any chance of a valve getting smashed if the cam was "locked up " as the dealer stated? If you know you have the basics covered take a compression reading off that bank, disable the injectors and coils before doing so.
