Read somewhere that you can spray water on headers or exhaust manifold (possibly both, I can't quite remember) while the car is running as a cheap way of possibly finding leaks. If the engine surges while spraying, then you found your leak.

What timing belt kit did you use? The symptoms you are describing remind me of my old Chevy Malibu where the timing chain was so stretched that it would idle terribly but once in the gas it was fine. Maybe your tensioner came loose? Worth pulling the cover off and checking for tightness

Edit: That would also explain your over retarded code, check into it
