ok. It sounds like the timing is off by a tooth. After you installed the belt, did you turn the engine by hand a couple times to make sure the marks still lined up?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No, I didn't.

I would suggest re confirming that your timing marks are still lined up correctly. With 4 cams to line up, there's a lot of marks in there to think about. I believe one of them is likely off. Make sure your tensioner is properly operating as well.
