What pins on which plugs at the ecu are(were) bent?

If the cams are only a tooth off,the engine should still run decent.

Maybe the tensioner is bad?
The tdc/cam position sensor pins are 25 and 26 on the "A" plug(far left slot)..on the bottom row, but theyre in the center.Maybe check to make sure those pins are completely straight..if one is bent or touching the other,the ecu could get mixed signals and think its 180 off.
Thats all I can really think of.Hope it helps.
