Sounds like your timing is off indeed. Easiest way to tell if it slipped is by checking base idle timing with a light. If it's not at 12 it is for sure slipped. You will lose some torque at the bottom end but the powerband should be nice and nearly stock smooth.

Also, FWIW, a good approximation for that cam is -4 degrees on a timing gear. That's where it lands when you set it to Enem's (original manufacturer) spec of 1mm of opening at TDC. This should result in more torque through the entire powerband (yes, even at low RPM).
