Default new hood = running problems (98gt)

hey everyone. what a crappy couple days. baught a cervinis hood with two cut out scoops on it. It rained, and ever since the car buckles, lost power and feels like its gonna stall going down the road. Im thinking its plug wires got wet...but hate to spend the money and be wrong. anyone think thatsright...or have any other suggestions? and has any1 had this problem?? thanks guys.

clean out the spark plug holes... plug the holes as well and take off the spoiler.

yeah, the intake runs out the fender. Its a cervini ram air type II hood. Looks ok, but what a hassle. Your saying just take a air gun and blow down into the plug holes? Oh and about the spoiler...previous owner had my car riced up...murdered my trunk with gaping screw holes. Its off of there come tax returns...
