Installed new parts, car runs like shit

O.K. tech heads, what's the deal here?

I first had the top end of the engine rebuilt. Car ran fine. Then I had
the turbo rebuilt and upgraded. Car ran fine.
Just installed new cap, rotor, air filter, ACCELL 8.8 Graphite wires and
Bosch Platinum spark plugs.( What is the correct gap? my book doesn't

Now the car runs like SHIT!!!

Do I need to advance the timing?
