2002 zx5 low on power with zetec

I have a 2002 zx5 with the zetec DOHC engine that jumped time before jumping time ran perfect, never missed a beat. Then it jumped time and now I retimed it and I have retimed other zetec engines and they ran just like normal but now after retiming this one it is low on power but it runs smooth and doesn't sputter. Can someone tell me what's wrong with it. I consider myself a pretty decent mechanic but I can't figure this one out.

Have you checked all the basics? Plugs, wires, compression, fuel delivery, obstructions in intake tract, vacuum lines?

If not using a TDC pin to locate crank could easily be a slight error there. Doing others successfully just means you lucked out on them. You describe perfectly slightly out of time cams.
