Default Need help with 05 STI cam timing

I have 5K miles on my new build. I have a new 2012 bottom end. I had the heads rebuilt by pro machine. I got a new gates timing belt kit with water pump & oil pump for the build. I had my local Subaru dealership build the motor & do the timing.

I started to get some knocking noise from the new motor. I drove 5 miles home. I got a p0011 check engine light once I got home. I checked the turbo & heads oil supply line to make sure there was no oil starvation. Oil system is working correctly. I checked the timing and found the exhaust cams are way off.






Shouldn't the exhaust cams look like this?



The only thing I was worried about doing myself was the motor build and timing. I payed $600 for Subaru to build the motor and to do the timing.

Why wouldnt you have turned your car around and gone back..??

You just paid to have all this done, does responsibility not lie somewhere??

I would have stopped on the side of the frikkin road and had them come get the effin car...

Trust me, I will be at the dealership Monday morning.

I did not pay for the install of the motor. I didn't want to pull the motor until I knew what was wrong. Timing belt is easy to check.

Is there any possible way for the timing to be done correctly then both exhaust cams flip in rotation? I just trying to get all the facts before talking to the dealer.

I talked to Gates support and they said the belt would have to of broken for this to have happened. I don't see any damage to the belt. But I don't think the motor would run with the exhaust cams like this but i am unsure on that. I changed the oil after I got home and the oil had no metal shavings in it.
