Could be several simple things actually, start by inspecting the air intake, for some simple things, such as, clogged airfilter, any cracks or holes in the "accordian tube"(intake tube connected to the airbox). Then check the throttle body for possible vacuum leaks, then take a look at the egr valve and hose going to the egr valve for clogs or cracks. Check/change pcv valve. Surprisingly, a silly little pcv valve will cause a no start. Then of course there is your suspicion of the timing being off, which is a good possibility. But I am thinking that it should have caused some damage to the valves, if this was the case.(Usually). Keep me posted please.
