Default 95 GST starts, then cuts off!!! Help Please

I just bought a 1995 Eclipse GST its been sitting for a year and I had to replace the head, I am very sure I got the timing right. I was able to start the car for a few seconds before it cut off. I rest the computer and then it ran good for a minute then it started doing the samething again. The cam senor is new and I believe the crank one is to. I heard about the oil pressure senor could cause this, but I'm not sure. I saw the oil senor, but there was no wire on the end of it. I don't see one around the senor. I'm not sure whats going on, so any help would be nice. Thanks

Dave

Ok, so I went out and got a code reader. It gives me the code P0340. It says its' the cam sensor, but I know that the one that's in there is fairly new. How do I test it?

Ok, I fixed it myself. It was the cam sensor. The one that I had in there looked brand new, So I put the old one back on. It worked. Goes to show you that no matter how good a part looks it could still be bad.
