Hello!It sounds to me like your camshaft or crankshaft pin or dowel pin could have broke or sheared causing your camshaft sprocket to move separate from the camshaft. This will cause your valve timing to be off even though the timing marks are dead on. Using a lab scope check the Cam/Crank sensor signals and sync. The patterns should be nice clean square waves with no dropouts. You can compare these signals to good know signals to see if there is any difference. Also, you can call the dealership and have them check for latest flash update for the Powertrain Control Module (PCM).
