i've read that you can install the timing gear backwards, which would put the timing 180 off. so maybe try deliberately setting it (the CAS) 180 off and see if it starts and runs.

I look into the cas gear no difference diabolica1 but as I put front cover I make sure to tdc the engine before installing the harmonic balancer re stab the cas and crank got car started but after about a minute it shut off if I disconnect the fuel pump and crank it starts up then I reconnect fuel pump car stays on for a minute then shuts off.... It's time to find a Haltech sport 1k tuner.
