How old are the plug wires, cap and rotor? Does it have electronic conversion or points?

Re-check the firing order and remember they go 1-2-3-4 on one bank anad 5-6-7-8 on the other. No offense but it happens.
Jim, just the guy I was hoping would reply.
I'll check the compression. Wires are 3 years old and have zip-tied them to the appropriate lengths to prevent such a goof up with how much I've taken things off & on. Cap & rotor unknown age, but has electronic ignition as was standard on '93s.

Can you clarify what you mean for valve springs being set correctly, do you mean seated on the rocker? Should I be hearing them pop at all after running the engine & shutting down?
