engine performance after bottom end rebuild

When I first reinstalled my car's engine it ran fantastic. Strong pulling power under hard load, engine was very blippy and sprite and it had intoxicating noise. It was everything that I had hoped it would be. During the last few drives that I've had in the car, I am now experiencing some bogging down when I step on the accelerator pedal at below 2500 rpm. It feels like it is just sputtering as if I was in too high a gear eventhough I would be in the correct gear for the speed I would be driving. I'm just about at the 1000 mile mark for doing the valve adjustment after the rebuild. Is what I'm experiencing a symptom of the valves needing adjustment or should I be looking for another remedy? Any direction anyone can point me in I would be most grateful. Thank you!
