90 SI won't start after timing belt and cam install. Please help!!

So a little backstory, the intake cam sprocket cracked and cracked the intake cam, we couldn't find a cam for it well not for a decent price, so we all but gave up on the car. Yesterday we went to u pull it and found dam near everything out of a nice prelude. Anyways.... we installed the new intake cam, torqued it to spec, installed the new timing belt, I used pins to hold the cams in place while we put the belt on I double checked after the belt was on the everything was lined up with the crank. I then adjusted the tension via the manual instructions, we bolted everything up and went to fire it and nothing would just crank and crank, code 41 on the ECU. What am I missing? We rechecked the wires, and connections, it sounds like it 180 off but I thought u can only install the cam one way, I'm missing something. Please any help would be awesome! I have a feeling it's something simple that I'm missing.

That sucks. I've had timing belt issues before. first off, a code 41 will not keep the engine from starting. So you can ignore that for now. You're going to want to check for the three things your engine needs to run. Spark, compression, and fuel. If it sounds funny I suspect that your timing is still off or you have bent valves. I would start with spark because it's the easiest. Then if you have that I would do a compression test. If you have both of those then your problem is probably fuel. Hope that gives you a place to start. Good luck
