Ok, quick background. I did my timing belt and got p1383 timing advanced first time. Read up on the procedere more and redid it then got p1381 timing retarded code. Unplugged the battery cause I didn't want it to go bad just sitting since I don't drive it right now. Well tonight I hook it up and go to put gas in it since it was on E. Ran like crap, no power, studdering like crazy just felt like it had was being suffocated when I put the gas on. Scanned it again when I got back home with my predetor tuner just to see and I got the p1380 code now but no timing retarded code. So maybe my vct solenoid took a dump. Who knows. Any help would be great, its about to go to the dealership cause its driving me crazy. Help!!!!!

You have the gear / gears installed wrong , I would go back over everything again and make sire the intake cam gear is properly positioned
