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.
