Default I need some help!

1991-2.3L efi, 8 spark plugs.

It started as a miss( it felt as if it turned off and back on in a second) at high way speeds-55mph, and sometimes would shut off at idle when at a light.
I changed the plugs,wires and coil pack on the primary side.( I cant get to the other plugs and im told there it wont help much to change them.) I do plan on changeing them at a later time.
I started it up and it ran good in the driveway. took it around the block she ran good.
Next day on the way to work going down the hi way at 55 it missed again. Now its missing more. I read some forums and the manual and I decide to clean the maf.
It runs good in the driveway again, ran it for half an hour in gear and out. Its late and raining so the test drive will have to wait. forward next day. I get going and then it starts doing the same thing but werse, now its missing(bucking) and stalls when i give it gas( I have to lift and then give it gas real slow to get it going.
I figure I messed up the maf so I change that. Runs good in the driveway so I go for a test drive, runs strong and I go around the block 3 times hot roding it to see how shes running. no problems
Next day I go to get gas and its right back to bucking and stalling when I give it gas.
Any Help, Im at a lose and cant put it in the shop till after X-mas.
