I just installed a new pertronix, new plugs, new wires.

Followed the directions in the box and the forum FAQ section here.

Now the car idles rough and misfires when you throttle up.

What am i missing?

Ive double checked the distance between the sleeve and the ingitor. Ive made sure they were flush and spaced right.

Check your firing order after putting on new wires. Did you knock a vacuum hose off? Did you set timing after install?
