Are you confident about the timing? Also, did you replace the variable valve timing control solenoid?
I attached two pics. The first shows the VTC solenoid location. The second shows how to check one. Here are the directions for testing:
1. Disconnect the solenoid connector.
2. Apply battery voltage to the terminals as shown.
3. The solenoid should make a clicking sound when voltage is applied and released.
4. Make sure that the plunger shaft protrudes.
Replace the solenoid if it fails the above test.
Let me know.
