Question

question on a 1994 Camaro Z28 (5.7L V8):

I recently changed my spark plugs and wires but the engine seems to be running even rougher than it was earlier. Anyone have any ideas why?

Make sure you plugged the wires all the way on the spark pluggs. They are hard to get to and that makes it easy for them not to click all the way on when thet are installed. Also make sure the wires are not running to close to the exhaust manifolds causing them to melt and arc.

Did you 'perhaps' crack a plug when you put it in?It does happen.If it runs worse now than it did before I would think it was something you did and I don't mean that snotty either.Go back over and check all the plugs out after you do like joekool1234567 said.
