    Timing belt being out will cause this ...........wouldn't hurt to set it up again.

    Doesn't take much when failing to account for the belt slack........

    CODE tags as explained here.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    Would this be consistent with timing being off when cold but normal when warmed up?

    Yup and from your work steps as described for the BSM.
    Did you install a new belt?

    Yes, a new belt was installed. However I don't have 100% confidence in the mechanic who did the job. Turns out he forgot to plug the oil feed hole for the BSM which I had to go back and do myself. He also screwed up an ECU doing the tune as a Malone dealer. Basically, I got conned. I hired him to do 3 things and I know for a fact he screwed up 2 things. I'd say it's possible, maybe even likely that he screwed up the third (new timing belt) as well.

    Sounds like it smells as if you should leave it "alone" I mean that person who un-helped you....

    Time to RTFB a belt and check basics ........people screw this up pretty routine and call themselves "professionals".

    Finally got around to checking the timing belt today. All is as it should be. So back to square zero. Any other suggestions out there?

    Have you tried a stock ecu and or flash to see if anti tuning or the config is being blocked from performing due to horseshit code or swap work........or deletes?

    As I wrote before I have 2 ECUs that I do trust and that don't seem to make a difference in how the car runs. One is a completely stock (with AT tune) that has had the Immobilizer deleted so it will work in my car, and the other has been re-tuned (MT and Stage 2 tune) and adapted to the immobilizer. Both ECUs have been programmed by highly competent and reputable tuners.
    Regardless which ECU I use the car starts and runs poorly with very advanced timing and no throttle response until it warms to 56-58C at which point the timing suddenly becomes normal, the throttle works, and the car runs and revs as it should. Swapping the ECUs have no effect on this pattern.

    Recheck your cam-belt work..............
