Maybe go into some detail like what model, engine, trans.

And I have no clue as to what your issue is. WTF is skippage?

Did you change the wires? What did you set the gaps to? What plugs did you get?

How did the plugs look when you changed them?

You definately could have a bad plug wire or 2 If the new ones are arching out of the boots too.

Did you set the gaps?

What about the cap/rotor? Also, did you use the HO firing order when you put the wires in?

I had a 79 5.0 a long time ago that had a miss. Turned out the PO set the firing order to a HO when it was not a HO motor. Went away after I set the plug wires correct.

gap set at 44 did not replace rotor just cap and put wire for wire unless the person before did not put the order right working 8 12hr. days straight so time is limited just seeing if you knew something I didn't thanks for all your input thus far

you should only be getting 3 digit codes out of a 94gt.
Where did you read the codes from?

Not what parts house. Where on the car? OBD2 port under the dash? WRONG. 94/95 GT's are still OBD1 and must be read from under the hood.
You can pull them yourself with a paperclip. the procedure is in your Haynes/Chilton manual
