Unhappy Timing belt troubles on my ZX2

Need some help with my 98 ZX2.
I replaced the timing belt and got something wrong. The motor stalls out easy and has no bottom end, itís all revs like a Honda. I checked all the timing marks before starting the motor and thought everything was cool. I checked the instructions with both the Hayes manual and the ones that came with the timing belt set. What can I do to fix this? Did I mess up the VCT some how? Any help would be great.

I know this is not a Focus just asking for knowledge.
