you may have a second fuel pump on the inside of the frame, drivre side under the front of the drivers door,dont know what it is called, boost the fuel pressure recived from the pump in the fuel tank if it is bad it will cause a problem like you are having

Timing is right on the money,,,but if you turn it as far as it will go towards the throttle body it runs a little better,,,I'm not understanding why the timing is right,yet it acts like the timing is the issue
