To make a long story short, me and some friends were driving down to Florida in March. Around 3 a.m. we hit a deer with my 02 WRX (At that time had Turbo XS Stage 4 kit w/ Unichip). Timing belt broke, thus the heads had to be rebuilt. My ins. was happy to pay to have the heads rebuilt, and ported and polished. Good deal I thought. After reassembling everything (DPR did the head work), the car is missing on all four cylinders (it is noticeable at idle).

Subaru checked to make sure the sensors were all good and retimed the timing belt.

Does anyone have some ideas we could try? We're going to make sure the spark plugs are in the correct heat range and then we're thinking about putting in a UTEC. I'd rather not blow any more money than is necessary though. But since I haven't had a working car since March, I'd like to get this done as well.

If you know 100% that the timing is adjusted correctly (its all aligned) then the valves might not be adjusted properly. You said there was headwork...its possible that the technician didn't adjust anything, just reinstalled the stuff and assumed you would. I've seen it before...
