Get hold of a repair manual for the car and follow the directions. I have never worked on a Mitsubishi Mirage, but there are usually marks on the cam and crank that need to be aligned, this is usually pretty easy to do.

Are you sure you don't have it correctly aligned, but have gotten the ignition timing wrong in the process? Remember that the crank turns over twice for every engine rpm. If you installed the cam with the crank 180 degrees out of phase, this would cause your spark to be 180 degrees off.

angie the reason the car won't start after correctly timimg it is the valves are probably bent. most of these small motors are "interfearance" motors, this means if the timing goes off for any reason the piston will hit and bend the valves.
