first off what kind of plugs did you put in single electrode copper plug is all you need if you put one of this double triple or quad electrode it'll run very poorly also check your firing order make sure everything is connected properly especially to your coil

in a g.m. car use acdelco tune up parts and never will you get any problems. check your firing order, and did it run rough before?
