Thanks for all your feedback. Problem is solved. The new crank sensor was faulty. I returned it, got a new one and it runs great.

I have learned alot on this. Just so I know for the future. The cam sensor only reads RPM?? And the Crank sensor reads the piston timing to properly inject fuel and send the spark????

well thats great, easy fix (sort of) , just a little brain racking.

and side note:
cam sensor=injector timing
and crank sens = spark (basically)
