I am curious to know which timing gear you ordered to which one should have been ordered. I used to work for Summit Racing in the call center. Can 100% tell you that their website is never accurate. But as far as their tech, they have some really, really knowledgeable guys there. And usually they take care of their customers, so that is strange you didn't get any discounts.
So sorry to hear about all this though! hopefully everything gets straightened out and back up and running!

Lol, for what? The timing set received is the one ordered. He spoke to Summit and knew exactly what he was getting.

OPs profile shows he hasn't been back to the site since 09/15. Guess he just wanted to vent about Summit and wasn't interested in figuring out the actual problem.

Get it apart and see where you are at, post results and let the wealth of knowledge on these forums help you move forward. It's an expensive lesson to learn but you won't make that mistake again. Good luck OP

Thanks Steve for the valid points and information I can see your point about the keyway and where it is supposed to be and I agree it looks off but it actually isn't we've taken everything apart and the inside "0" is lined up to the keyway as well but it still looks like it's at 3 o'clock or so, We still think this timing set is just off since it's not made for the LS3 but I've put it behind me and I'm trying to put this thing back together
Here's an update

7 bent exhaust valves, 1 broken valve, 1 bent intake valve

A few valves just barey tapped the tops of the pistons so all the pistons are fine except the one where the valve broke, I'm going to replace that piston cause it's pretty jacked up il replace the rod as well cause I'm sure that maybe bent but currently all parts are on the way and The heads are being cleaned up,valve job and they are replacing the 8 exhaust valves and one intake valve.

Turn around is pretty quick too I dropped them off Monday and I'm picking them up the following Monday

My only worry now is I got rid of the OEM plastic timing chain tensioner because of all the horror stories I hear and I replaced it with the LS2 style dampener. Is that okay to use with a double roller as well? I got a free timing cover from summit on the way this one here
https://m.summitracing.com/parts/cca-5496

It says in the notes it Will not work with the LS7's unique oil pump and chain tensioner setup. So do I have to go back to the shitty ls3 tensioner or should I just reuse my stock timing cover so I can use the ls2/ls7 dampener?
