Try retracing your steps. Check everywhere you were touching things, perhaps you accidentally knocked a vacuum hose loose. If the plugs can be adjusted, make sure they're gapped properly. If you have a voltmeter i'd check the resistance of the plug wires to make sure they're ok. Acceptable resistance of the plug wires vary from car to car. But obviously, the lower the better. It may be possible that you got the firing order wrong when you hooked up the wires, here is a site that will give you that order: http://brothersperformance.com/technotes/tuneup/firing-order.php

Why does your Mustang misfire?

The main reason a car misfires is because the spark plug wires are not installed correctly. Check the car's firing order to ensure the spark plug wires running from the distributor cap to the spark plugs (in the cylinders) are in the right order. One or more spark plugs could be damaged or worn so the firing order is correct, but the spark plugs are not sparking into the spark plug wires to ignite the engine.
