    When you reinstalled the timing chain tensioner and released the tesion, the timing marks on the camshaft sprockets should have been pointing toward six o'clock,,and the index mark on crankshaft timing gear should have been pointing toward twelve o'clock.

    Well how does it run out on the road? If it runs strong and normal, then it's not a timing issue. If you had installed things incorrectly the car would run like crap on acceleration/hwy/etc.

    Any chance of a misfire on one cylinder?
