90 Honda Prelude

I have a 90 Honda Prelude with a 2.0 double overhead cam. We just had the head redone. (had it pressure tested and checked for warpage) Everything checked OK so we had a valve job done on it. Put it back on the motor and set everything to specs.
The problem is that the car is running ruff like it might be out of time. We checked the timing 3 times. It seems to be OK .
Can someone give me an idea what might be wrong.

Could be anything..need a more accurate description.

What do you mean by seems out of time? Double check your vacuum lines for cracks, misrouting, splits and electrical connectors that might not be all the way on or were left off, etc.

Are you checking ignition timing or valve timing?It sound like the cams may be out of phase on this engine you should put 2 punches(5mm)in the holes behind each cam gear,1 per cam.This will keep them in place during timing belt installation.
