Porting and Polishing is an art, a bad job can make you loose hp (like you mentionned). I think you should bring your head to a professionnal to see if it can be saved... but I doubt it.
Good luck...

before jumping the gun i'd be sure that everything is tuned properly! is the mixture set? is the throttle cable adjusted correctly, in other words are you getting full throttle?
of course the bad news is, as stated already, a shotty P&P job can be disasterous... but check everything else first!!
