I will see if I can help you, what are the details of the vehicle, other than vw?

Is it hydraulic tappets? Did you put them back where they came from? Did you depressurise them? Have you ground the valve seats?

If everything is perfect as you say, I wonder if it is the hydraulic tappets or lifters are under or over pressurised depending.

As I said, I am just guessing atm as I don't know what car it is.

Do you have any codes or access to them?

It's a 1300 cities Chico 2002 model. An engineering shop overhauled the head for me

I will opt out and let some better placed to help you advise you, i'm not familiar with that engine.
