SOURCE: I have a 99 chevy
A good test would be a smoke test to see if smoke comes out the intake, another way is to spray carb cleaner on intake port for take cylinder and see if it runs richer. i think you may have a bad intake or gasket these are kown for intake leaks, if you had a bad head it would run hot,i would pull the intake and check the gasket.make sure to use the old design not the new plastic type gasket with rubber oring seals.

I have had continuous missing issues on my 1997 Silverado after i had a new engine installed 30,000 miles ago. Today I purchased a new gasket for the EGR Valve and removed it. The mechanic had re-used the old gasket when he replaced the engine and cut corners to save $2.00. I found he had installed the EGR bass-ackwards causing my check engine light to stay on and the engine always to miss. Engine runs GREAT now

Bent valves would be number one cause. Check the timing. If you lost time, your valves are tapping the pistons causing the knock. When the valves tap the pistons they bend and don't close all the way, so the cylinders cant make compression.
