Possibly? I was thinking going from no traction/low load to high traction suddenly could cause the belt to skip and throw your timing off.

Hmm thats a decent point... Im going to reflash it tomorrow after I pull the cold air intake and see what happens.

If that doesn't do it, ill start pulling the front apart to see what might be going on there... the no CEL part is messing with me. Wish I had something I could start from. If it did skip it wasn't by much, it sounds OK when I force it to run with the throttle. Fingers crossed!

Well I went ahead and reflashed it and put back the stock air breather. No change.

At this point I am thinking that markus might be right, I think I may have slipped a few teeth. Going to start tearing into it tonight to verify. I already have the belt guides on order, if nothing else its worth doing while I'm in there.

Question. I can pull the covers on the sides and put the crank to TDC to make sure I am lined up correct? Just wondering if I am not thinking correct on that.

Thanks gents!

Well so far hit and miss.

No CEL's, starts but runs super rough and will die. So far I've done the below
  1. Recleaned the MAF sensor let it dry and even swabbed the diodes, no change
  2. Replaced cold air intake with stock
  3. Pulled programming and went back to stock, no change
  4. Reflashed to tune that was working great the past few weeks.
  5. Pulled front of motor to check for timing issue, it looks good to me. Pics attached for opinions.

At a loss here. Going to pull plugs and make sure I didn't burn one or two up but have a hard time considering I have less than 1000 miles on her since all new everything.

The only thing I noticed when I was in there was one of the intake lines had fallen off but its the smaller 5/16 that used to go to the Evap system that is now disables.

Gents, seems no one has anymore thoughts. Here is one last attempt at feeding off your knowledge before I have to fold and take it to my mechanic.

Ran through everything again and still nothing. Took it down to the turbo and it seemed to be spinning freely and all hoses are good to go. It will idle on startup now but I'm getting this weird noise.

yeah its so loud in the garage with the exhaust I didn't notice it until I listened to the video... weird.

Found a video on youtube where that noise ended up being a burnt valve... that has me a bit worried. I think I will replace the mat and find that intake leak and see where I end up.
