Default My rebuild z6 not turing on

Just did a rebuild on my d16z6 and its not starting any more. Turned on about 6 times did a test drive and the transmission is horible...the motor shakes a lot and when driving it shifted late and at about 3500 or 4000 rmp and hard. Now it wont even start like someone removed the main negitive from the wire harness. Im lost a fresh motor should run right?

you need to be more specific...could be lots of things.timing bealt slipping,..assuming its the same motor that came out...and is installed correctly,pop off timing cover and make sure your cam gear and crank gear are still at top dead center.they are marked pretty clearly.i just had the gear on my crank spin on the main crank,nocked out of time,no start.is it turning when starter is engaged.is the distributer off top dead ctr and in correct cam gear.all assuming your block was assembled right.
kind of need more input.
