Hi,

Since ever I installed a new cylinderhead,
timing has become a problem.
(the car has no proper accleration)
I know that the crankshaftpulley has two markings
which one with the OT mark is the correct one,
and above by the camshaft has 3-point markings.
The problem is that you have to lock the camshafts
first, then you have to adjust the crankshaftpulley,
it seems that it's not perfectly on the OT marks,
or its one cm before or one cm after the engines
top dead center.
What else should I look after???

Its pretty hard to set the engine timing up incorrectly. Set the crank at OT then lock up you Cams using the two holes that line up with the can carrier. Then fit the chain tensioner.
I would be supprised if that is your power loss problem sounds to me like a boost pressure fault
