Type S engine is sluggish. HELP

I just finished dropping my TYPE S w/atts in and as i accelerate the car feels sluggish. The idle is a bit rough too, and my poly mount inserts play a cause of that also but I'm using the jdm engine harness and jdm ecu. Direct swap and play. I have no CEL's but i do have an ATTS light on, but that shouldn't affect the way my car feels. I retarded my timing a little bit and it feels a little bit better, but the power is just not there. MY stock a4 felt peppier. My EGR that came with the car was full of carbon w/supposedly 30k miles, so i cleaned it up as best as i could, still nada.

I changed plugs, wires, rotors, all rubber seals, all belts. I'm at a lost.
ANy suggestions at this point would be appreciated.
