Default new engine troubles

hey guys i just put a new stock engine into my 2001 ram 1500. i followed the break in procedures and everything seems to be working ok but i think the timing is to far advanced. it will not idle but runs at higher rpms. and when you try to start it it feels like its fighting itself to start. i have heard since the ignition is all computer controlled i need to have my computer reflashed? it was disconnected from a power source for an
bout a month and a half. any ideas or suggestions. please please help

I wish I could give you a great answer, have you done all the work yourself? Did you have any issues with the previous engine systems?
