I changed the spark plugs on left 4set which the wrong kind and i drove it down the road. It started missing and not able to accelerate and it went dead. I changed the left 4set plugs and wires and coil pack with correct type. My truck will crank but it will not stay crunk it dies out and runs very rough.

Not quite sure what you mean? I'm guessing it won't stay running but can start - right? If total wrong plugs were accidentally used it might and repeat MIGHT self corrrect with some use if this was running OK before all this and the replacement of plugs was just maintainence,

Were the wrong plugs physically damaged when you pulled them back out?

I am going to replace the map sensor. Do you think i should replace the MAF sensor?

Throw all the parts you want at it. Just don't expect it to fix anything.

I asked you a question earlier and you never responded.
You caused it somehow when you put the plugs in so go back over it looking for something that could have got knocked off.
