1998 Honda Civic Question: Why is my civic have a loud ticking noise, stalling out, and slow on acceleraion

I have a 98 civic with d16y8 engine. The ticking noise is definitely coming from under the valve cover. I have put a new timing belt on it and set #1 cylinder to tdc. After that I went ahead and did the valve lash clearance. I made sure I used the correct specs for valve clearance and made sure the valves I was doing were on the compression stroke. The ticking noise is really loud and if I rev the engine up even slightly it sounds really really terrible.

    Re-check your valve adjustment. Valve lash was adjusted with engine COLD , right? Any misfire? ALL valve stems come up to proper height(bent valve(s)?
