Default Please help me not blow up my miata!!!!!

Sorry for the long post, but please read.

I am getting to the point that I just want to blow it up!!! So some of you guys may remember back in Feb I over heated my motor and warped the head. Project "Got too Hot" I had gotten that all fixed and the car running then one of the little coolant hose going to the throttle body blew and the car over heated yet again. Added bonus it happened the 2nd time driving the car after fixing it. So at that point I decided to just do a stock rebuild on the other 99 motor I had in the garage that had 147,XXX miles on it and keep the motor NA, til I get a daily and house I am trying to buy.

That gets us up to the point I am a now. I took out the other motor and put the new one in. I connected everything, got all new hose, M-tune coolant reroute, big aluminum rad, new plugs, and wires. Then when I tried to start the car, NOTHING. So I checked to see if I had fuel going to the motor. I did an injector pulse test and fuel pressure test, both came out fine. Then I went to spark, I tested to see if I had any spark coming from the wires with the good old screw driver test and that was fine the first time I tested it. The car still wouldn't start. Checked the engine for codes and P1345 came up. So I checked to see if I had power/signal go to the cam sensor and the crank sensor, both came out fine. Car still wouldn't start! So I decided to get a new cam sensor. Still nothing. I did another test. Took off the cam sensor and put a tester at the end of spark plug wire #1, had someone trying to start the car while I waved a wrench in front of the sensor, I got spark!! So now I have no clue of what could be happening. PLEASE if anyone has any clue or ideas of what it could be please post.

Thanks
Rudy

Check to make sure the cam gear is the correct one for the intake cam also check cam timing or the correct postion of the cam gear on the intake cam

can it be the timing plate behind the crank pully being backwards?
