Timing is another issue, not going to cause it to run rough. You may have a fuel pressure issue. Should check the fuel pressure, it should be 56 to 63 lbs. Do a bleed down test since a gauge is hooked up, just watch the gauge to see if it holds fuel pressure. Pressure should not drop more than 5 lbs in three min.
