Default timing belt gone wrong question

here's the back story, well i put a new timing belt in my 06 wrx as well as water pump and oil pump and new radiator, when putting the timing belt on, i ended up putting the top right cam 180 degrees out of time, i cranked it over by hand and there didnt seem to be any sort of collision, it turned through 2 full cycles with no trouble, so i installed the radiator and filled my fluids, went to start the car and noticed that only the left 2 cylinders were firing and the car wouldn't turn over, hence i assume that the belt was 180 degrees out of time, since i had spun it around a few times in the process of installing the timing belt and must have switched the orientation.

now for my question, does anyone know if in fact there is clearance in valves and piston to where i didnt just throw a valve into my piston and destroy everything, the motor is stock with stock internals

Yes at 180 out the pistons are in the same position as if you had it right. the other cam is just opening at the same time. there should be no damage.
