double check plug firing order. Is the plug gap correct? You can swing into auto zone and they'll tell you why the engine light is on.

You probably have a loose timing belt and worn out tensioner and slipped one tooth. This could fry your Catalytic a bit. You'll get P300 codes of more than one indicating sudden multiple misfires when you should just get one at a time if at all.
