gonna go back out and put original plug wires back in see if that helps. oh and no cel comes on no whipple warning light flashing no weird noises. i'm stumped.

The ECU does not re-learn from having the battery disconnected. Carefully go over your work. Look for anything that may have been disconnected or broken accidently while replacing parts. If you can see what DTC (engine codes) using a diagnostic scanning tool at the OBDII diagnostic port. Your problems will show a code(s). If you are using the key entry to acquire it may not always work.

Hopefully, and I am sure it is something simple and just overlooked.
