HEI Missing

I recently did a HEI Tune up and put a new cap/rotor, module, and wires on. Now the engine seems to miss at idle speed. I know there can be many things that it can be but any suggestions on what?

Was it fine before you put the new parts on?

I don't want to insult you by asking an obvious questiuon.. Are you sure the plug wires are on in the right order? No offense intended ok.. I have done that before.

There must have been some reason you wanted to spend money on new parts, what were the symptoms before?

I also put in a new vacuum advance unit. that was the main reason why I got into it because it wasn't functioning, but it didn't seem to be missing before... the other parts were pretty worn as well...

upon further evaluation it only seems to do it when its cold <150 degrees. Maybe that's normal?
