Car wont start after vvt cam install 😔

So i just installed a gpi ss3 vvt cam on my car.... it started up on the first start like nothing.. i let it idle for 10 minutes but it started overheating because i think it still had air in the water system. Well after i tried to start it on again it wouldnt start anymore. The only way it would stay on if i have my foot on the gas and keep it revd up. I kept revd up for 8 min at 1200 rpms to see if it wouldnt overheat anymore but the temp seemed fine now.. after that it threw a check engine light, engine power loss, traction control lights on. I towed it to my tuner so he can dyno tune it tomorrow but he said hes never seen a 5th gen run that bad before. What can it be?

scan the OBDII and see what codes you got.

Apparently he got it working because he posted another thread questioning his poor dyno numbers. Would be nice to know what he did to get it going...
