I would double check the firing order you have your spark plug wires at. I am guessing that is your problem

NOT IF YOU HAVE THE INDEPENDENT COIL PACKS FOR EACH SPARK PLUG THERE IS NO WAY POSSIBLE TO MIS-CONNECT. MINE, YOU TAKE HARNESS CLIPS OFF EACH COIL PACK (WHICH IS CONNECT TO A PLASTIC TYP3E RAILING KEEPING THEM ALL IN A LINE) AND PULL EACH PACK OFF EACH SPARK PLUG

HAVING FOUND OUT AFTER HAVING BATTERY/THROTTLE BODY DISCONNECTED FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME THE THROTTLE(ELECTRICAL NO CABLE) DEVELOPS A DUMBASS DISEASE AND YOU NEED A VAGCOM KIT TO MAKE THE THROTTLE RELEARN ITS STARTING POSITION ALSO CALLED THROTTLE BODY ADAPITION
