Did you check the timing belt to make sure it didnt break? Other than that actually check some shit, we can't fix it for you over the internet.

timing could be off
plugs may not be gapped correctly
you might have gotten the firing order wrong
may have jumped a tooth or 2 on the timing belt

you need to post something other than the parts you threw at it.

The firing order is right, i haven't check the alternator yet, I'm doing a compression test soon to see if my head has a bent valve, but also with the alternator all my lights are not dim...

Doesn't make sense. Their talking about your mechanical timing.

Check fuel pump operation, check spark, check timing marks at cams,crank. Should line up at tdc.
Judging by your username stop smoking so much weed and read a book.
