2nd time around, need some ideas, SPI will not stay running

2003 SPI engine, bought the car with a pining noise when accelerate and wanting to die after the engine warm up, ford house said bad gas, drained fuel tank 3 times, change out filter 3 times and the in-tank fuel pump, change out plugs, wires, coil pack, crank sensor and cam sensor, had the engine cat tested for back pressure, had the fuel injectors checked, getting 35 psi at injector rail, then engine drop number 1 cylinder valve exhaust seat, change out head assy, piston and piston rod, timing belt and engine gasket set, engine would not start, back to ford house, they said engine oil pump is not working, change out pump, oil light now goes out when cranking but when cranking engine it's sound like if the engine timing is too far advance, had the ECM reflashed, rechecked the engine timing belt both dots and key way locations, checked the engine compression 160 160 155 160, change out the throttle body off a running focus, now if you pour some fuel in the throttle body it will start but only stay running if you feather the throttle and the pining noise is back with a miss, no engine codes, any ideas will help
