Thanks for using JA

Install the intake camshaft. Ensure that the groove at the back of the camshaft is above an imaginary centre line.
Position the exhaust camshaft. Ensure that the groove at the back of the camshaft is below an imaginary center line

did the cam alignment as shown, did not work. Even worse, can't start car now. Are you sure this is the for 2002 S60 2.4 turbo? We start with my original problem of hard starting, low spark. Have any ideas as to what/how to fix?
I checked my timing - correct.
I check my spark plugs & coil packs - new & good.
I checked ECU - no check engine light on; thus no code.
I checked and replaced cam and crank sensor - good.
I checked mass air flow & all air flow units - good.
I checked for vacuum leaks - none found: good.
*I'm beginning to think it's not a timing issue; but have checked all else. Please advise.

Do you have the special tools for locking the crank and cams?
