Not running after head gasket repair

Im new to the whole ford thing so i know very little about them, but i just did a headgasket on my 04 svt. I put it all in time and what not and it doesnt even want to start. Its just pops and backfires when cranking. I have a p0193 fuel pressure circuit high code. Not sure if thats just from not starting or what but im stumped

Do a compression check and recheck your timing.

Do a compression check., you may have bent the intake valves.

Compression test and see if you get a P1383 or a P1381

How did you get it 180 off if you use the cam plate ?

X2, should be impossible to do that. Likely bent some valves in chasing it, that engine doesn't allow for playing around with cam timings in a sloppy fashion........

Saving 20 bucks on not using the timing tools just cost you 10 times that.:(

Anybody that knows engines at all should be able to roll a cylinder over enough to check at overlap the fairly close to each other relationship between intake and exhaust cams.

Beyond that, the cam grooves are easily able to be seen to have one off 180, the grooves in back are cut off center. You need no tools at all for either one of those checks.

The SVT is the WRONG engine to be trying to save any money on. Now you get to change all the bent valves.

Oh well.....................
