Hello Niall

1st thing to double check is the cam timing as its a complicated process and I'd suggest a good double check is to compression test the engine on all cylinders as if 1 cam is out by 180 degrees then you'll have a couple of low cylinders

they should all be within 10-15 psi of each other if its all timed up correctly
