i just finished installing a new timing belt in my 04 MSM lined everything up. car idles great for 10 minutes. put the wheels back on, lowered it off jack stands, and now it wont start it fires once then nothing. it threw a code p0340 after a few tries. i made sure the timing wheel was on correctly it is. I removed the belts to check the timing wheel then tried to turn it on with the belts off and it started and ran perfect. i reinstalled the belts now it wont start again. I am truly at a loss.

That code indicates a problem with the Cam Sensor, not the Crank Sensor.  But that said I'd start by checking for a problem with the wiring for the crank sensor.  Could the wires be cut by the water pump pulley which would explain why taking off the belts might make it run. 

If you can't find anything there, the timing disc is on right and the crank sensor is parallel and adjusted to the minimum gap then I'd go after the Cam Sensor.  Do not get an OEM unit.  Rock Auto sells them at a good price.

I had a similar issue once but it was insane.  I had the EBC solenoid break off the cam cover and fall down on the belts.  When the engine was running slowly it was fine but when it revved the unit moved and shorted out the crank sensor.  Of course this happened during the MATG weekend when I was leading my clubs membership to the gap.  We were running up the mountain road to Highlands NC and the car kept losing power.
