Are your cams timed properly? What I mean is the belt can slip a tooth and it'll run, but not like it should.

If one cam is off by one tooth on its sprocket, the ignition timing will only be affected if it's the one that drives the distributor. If the other sprocket skips, you can't tell because the other cam is still in the right position along with the distributor. The only way to tell is to pull the timing cover off and check the belt and sprockets' position.
