Also how long since your timing belt was replaced? Should have been done at 60k. This an interference engine if it jumps time or belt breaks you will bend valves. If plug wires are correct and everything is plugged back in as it should be I would advise to do a compression check. Any cylinders showing 0 psi will have bent valves.
