Those timing marks need to be dead on. It'll throw a code even if its half a tooth off. You'll get a code if you can get it to 3000RPM or if it runs long enough to get to operating temp.
Did you make sure all the pushrods were seated properly?
All the fuel injectors connected?
Vac. line from the back of the manifold reconnected to brake booster?
If you have a predator or other tuner, try raising the idle RPM by 100-150.
Definitely get a CMR tune form JerseyBoy or Johan.

How severe is your noise? Is it terrible or simply more noticeable? Did you change your pushrods or still using the stock rods?

Good job getting the running/tune issue resolved.
