Check your compression and then check your timing. My guess is that the tensioner is not updated and/or on of the guide rails has come appart. This will retard your timing and may have even allowed your chain to jump a tooth.
The reason I say check your compression is to make sure you don't tear it apart and put it back together just to find out you have a couple of bent valves. I'm guessing they are ok since it's still running, but at least you'll know if there is anything else you would like to do when you have the head off.
Drop me a email if you have any further questions - I had a very simular problem, could not get my 16V to rev above 2500 rpm and it had no power.
