If the catalytic converter disintegrated before you replaced it, the muffler may have been clogged by chunks of ceramic falling from the cat and migrating back to the muffler.
Try this: drive the car warm, then stop and with a helper to gradually raise the RPMs while standing, listen at the tailpipe. If you clearly hear the individual firing of the engine then the system is probably clear. If you notice that the sound is more of a hiss, then either the muffler or (if it has one) the resonator are clogged.
On a car with a heavy-gauge stainless exhaust system, two shots from a .357 magnum into the tailpipe opened it up again (forever) and didn't really make much difference in the loudness of the exhaust. I wouldn't recommend doing that with most exhaust systems though.

Lacks power and acts like its not firing on all cyliders could the timing chain have jumped a tooth ? 1996 4.0L explorer 200,000 miles

Are there any engine codes ? This vehicle is OBD II ! A bad maf sensor will give you poor idle and lack of power and on fords often times no codes ! Another possible cause could be exhaust restriction due to a catalytic coverter being stopped up ? Previous misfires if driven long enough can trash a cat ! Let me know if any codes are present and what they are !

2001 elantra lack of power

Confirm ur fuel pump is working. Ensure ur pickup tube is not blocked. Then ensure u did not leave a rag or parts in the manifold tubes. Not laughing it happens. Is the distributor in the right spot. Etc etc. Did u rehook the alt up if removed . Is tje battery fully charged. And lastly is the fuel flowing and freash. Then recheck your work did u replace all parts right. Any air in the head gasket will make the fuel /air mixture off.
Good luck
