Mad Here i go agian

Well i got a new head for my 97 sl2 1.9 dohc cleaned and inspected all the valves new stem seals new gaskets (i say new head but its from pick n pull so its new to me) reasimbled engine some confusion timming the cams but after some internet surfing got it did a final check for missing or loose items then started the engine it ran real smooth for about 2 minutes then it started to run rough and got worse untill now it wont idle
did a compression check #1 zero compression #2 130 psi #3 and 4 90 psi so my question is if the lifters are sticking extended will the valves hit the pistons the lifters were out of the engine for a week
the first time i did set the timming wrong but i only turned the engine by hand i never felt the valves hit but could i have started the valve damage from that
so now i pull the head agian at least i know how now its not to bad
