    Did you set timing? The marks on the cams and crank pulley? Did you buy yours assembled? After you set TDC and got the pulleys timed to crank, you rotated crank a couple times to make sure timing marks were still good? You can be off 180, but you wouldn't know until you spun the crank a couple times when assembled. But you can check it now. What has to come off on the 3RZ to check the timing marks?

    10 days later I finally got around to finishing this leg of the journey. Thank you so much for all your help, in the end it was my own stupidity that was the major hang up, a plug from the harness that goes behind the glove box had a black plastic cam lock and I pushed the plug in but neglected to flip the lock so it wasn't fully engaged... plugged it in and boom! Fired right up

    Then had issues with it sputtering and wanting to die on take off. Got a misfire in cylinder one code, swapped the pink knockoff injectors back to the stock browns and all is right with the world:D
