I need some tune up help

I decided to do a tune up this weekend which included spark plugs and wires and a cold air Intake (I got the AM one on sale). The engine was fine before I started these and I did them together because of access issues. After I first finished and tried to start the engine shook violently and died.... Found out I crossed two wires in the process even after double checking. So after fixing and checking over several diagrams and having several people check my work it started up but it isn't running right. I took all the plugs out to check them and I re gapped and re torqued them. I broke a boot wire in the process so I replaced that too. The plugs had a chalky residue on them that the stock ones did not so I thought it wasn't getting enough fuel to the spark (plus I smelled fuel in start up) so I cleaned the maf sensor and it still isn't working just right. It idles low and doesn't accelerate quick at all and rises kind of rough... Any thoughts at all? Sorry about the length trying to get the details in here
