Default spark plug wires going in the trash

so i got a new project tomorrow... my roommate asked me to look at his car to see why it was running so bad...

92 grand am with 3.3L

started with a drive, that lasted about 50ft... felt like it was running on 1 or 2 cylinders

popped the hood, in the dark, and i could see spark on the OUTSIDES of the wires, and near all the connections on the coils

new lifetime warranty wires and autolight 605'* going on tomorrow!

No!! The correct answer is to just put in new plugs. Then you het a clear Lexan hood, and call it a light show...
