so yesterday I decided to change out the exhaust to the original straight pipe from the cat back that was on it cause the other one had a clear leak. I didn't think of it much so I turned the key and it just cranked and didn't start. The car has no prior issue at all. I don't even know what could cause so I'm going to the rabbit hole. I don't know if the battery could have been randomly depleted a bit and I will try jumping it in a bit. The only wires I touched were the o2 sensors. How is this even possible? Would appreciate any help.

I just experienced an extremely odd issue. As of late, my force controlling siphon chose to break into pieces, the pulley and pulley-shaft isolated from the remainder of the siphon, perplexing the belt. I didn't need the motor to overheat too severely, so I pulled over as fast as could really be expected (was just overheated for possibly 30 seconds).

Anyways if someone is checking up on this thread, had it diagnostics at the shop and they told me the timing jump/off. I did notice during startup something would grind for a second and go normal. I searched and that noise could also be related to the VTC actuator / sprocket. I didn't get any check engine for timing retard/advance so I had no clue. Also it didn't start when the car went from working to on jack stands, then no start. If someone is having a similar issue it could be timing related. I ordered original chain and tensioner and aftermarket rest. Gonna get the car back soon and confirm timing is off and if I have any bent valves.

Well timing was off replaced chain and tensioner and chain was stretched. Everything seems to be back to normal but I started having weird idle issues 1-2k rpm bouncing intake air leak. p0505 iacv, now rpm is stable around 1k arm idle.
