Hmm, I am assuming that you changed the whole timing set, right? If the car jumped time while it was running, you could have bent a valve or two. If my memory is correct, this is an interference/impulse engine. I do not remember the specifics of it off hand, but when they jump time while running, the top half of the engine can actually run backwards for a stroke or two while the bottom half is going the other way, causing you to bend valves. A bent valve could be causing your car to run badly.
Also, if you used aftermarket parts, it is possible that there is just too much slack in the aftermarket parts.
Finally, if I am not mistaken, Nissan did do an update to something in the timing chain guides some years ago. But the last I checked, the updated parts are only available at the dealership. Aftermarket companies have not got into that as far as I know.
