You've replaced the timing belt as a prevention maintenance or it has failed? In case of failure was made also a valve job? Why changing the head gasket? Are the spark plugs and cables new? the answer will bw within these questions...

it could be a broken or unhooked vacum line but i really am gonna go with the timing being out a couple of teeth it thats the case the car would idle rough and and stumble plus lack a bit of power on take off. if the timing is off the comptuer will compasate for that and advance the firing on the coil the comp uses a few different sencer's to determine when to fire it uses the cam shaft postion scencer and the crankshaft scencer you should have the timing rechecked by a different shop and see what they say for sure but be suer to tell them that you work done on the vechile.

SOURCE: changed the water pump and
when you installed the timing belt back on the gears you have gotten one or more teeth out of time on the cam gears this is why it runs good on the road but badly when idling.you will have to remove the timing cover and reset the engine on #1 compression and check all the timing marks and make sure they are in the proper position.re-adjust and recheck all marks are in the proper position after rotating the motor twice.

SOURCE: just had the water pump
sounds like the timing is one(maybe two) teeth out of time on the timing belt. the computer is trying to advance or ****** the timing to compensate for the misaligned camshaft spockets.
