HELP!!!!....WTF?

update:

so it starts but still isn’t right. When it was running there was a fair amount of smoke come out the tail pipe. Either way, its heading to the shop. I’ve run out of time to do this on my own.

I had replaced a cam position sensor based on a ‘historic code’. I decided to try the old one and it actually started, HOWEVER, i put the new one back in and it started again. The car hasn’t run in maybe 3 weeks, so this was its first start up.

This is the order of what I did:

running rough: found a slice in the tube between the air box and intake maifold., replaced tube

P0300 random misfire, runs rougher: spark plugs, cleaned MAF

no change, replace one of two cam position sensors (while waiting for that, I took the opportunity to replace a leaking oil pan. while removing the oil pan, a coolant pipe was damaged. oil pan still leaks, drain oil, do a goop seal, replace oil. COOLANT PIPE ARRIVES 2.5 WEEKS LATER. attach pipe, add coolant, push start, and that brings us to current time with this evenings fun.
