Double check the spark plug wires. Did you make sure the spark plug gap was correct?

No they said there all pre gapped.

Usually plugs are OK but I always check them. The wires are the prime suspect. If two are switched it will run like crap.

Ok I'll check again

If it ran okay before you worked on it the most likely cause is you got the wires mixed up.
