Kill the caps, no need to shout.

Back to the shop that did the "repair" and ask them why you paid money for a still broken vehicle.

You didn't mention what engine you have but from your post I'm assuming you have a timing chain.
Sounds like you are out of time most likely with the chain but possiblly late ignition timing.
First try disconnecting the battery to clear the computer and re-learn idle strategy but if you say you have starting problems also, I wouldn't get my hopes up on that. Try a compression test and that will give you some idea where to go from there.

I would guess its a 3.1 and you replaced the crank becouse it spun a brg. (another GM boat ancor). The crank has a crankshaft position sensor reluctor ring on it. Did the new one have it on and was it on the right position?

The idle on those needs to be relearned after a disconnected battery......it will learn itself eventually, or u can get it done at a dealer.

The part about not starting at all kinda killed that theory

It isn't a theory, it's a fact!
