Ka-t No Power

Ok, so I've got most of my issues solved for now, and my ka idles great, but I've got a severe lack of power. Compression is 163 on all four and I build boost well, but I've got even less power than when I was n/a. Just revving the engine there is a big hesitation after applying throttle. Plugs are dark sooty black, when i get into boost it gets plenty loud but doesnt go anywhere fast, no the clutch isnt slipping. Seems to still be running very rich. I have to have the distributor all the way clockwise to get to 20 degrees, which makes me think the lower chain may be off a tooth, but I'm not sure because it seems like it wouldn't start so easily or have good compression numbers. Running a t25 and enthalpy tune. Draw through z32 maf, and 370cc injectors, walbro 255 pump. Does this sound like a timing chain issue?

Start with the basics. Put your timing back to stock.

Whats your plug gap?
Also, when is the last time you changed the fuel filter?

Next look for vacuum/boost leaks
