Changing plugs/wires made engine worse.

you shouldnt have to gap the plugs buy the pre-gapped bosch plugs i use them in all my z's If it sounds like your going 90mph but only going 30, check the catalic converter....If its not that( if its glowing red after driving for 20mins, or when you smack it with a hammer and it sounds like a rock its bad) It could be a timming issue or a distributer/ rotor/cap issue....Is it manual or auto.Is the check eng light on?
