Question about 2002 Chevrolet Corvette

Missing ocasionally changed leads and plugs now constant miss

1996 VS Commodore: Car occasionally started missing on long trips, u could feel the car slow like it was starving for something, like fuel or air. As quickly as it started it would stop and the car would regain its original speed. If on cruise control it would stay at the same speed but would ahve to fight it's self. I put in a new air filter changed the fuel filter at the tank. But when i put in new plugs and leads the miss became constant, its there from the moment u start the car. I thought the problem was fuel but my brother owns a 98 VT and he saidd his played up when the leads were on the outer, now i've changed them the car is worse then before. Please help

Changed spark plugs ht leads and coil and still the car is missing when i drive it wot am i missing

With the miss you have it could be a few things.
did you change all the coil packs?
did you refit the heat shields to the new spark plug needs as these can cause a miss .
it could be the electronic module under the coil pack.
it could be a faulty injector or fuel problem..
