I would check your firing order, make sure all your plugs are connected good, and make sure your maf sensor is connected. If that doesn't work check your fuel pressure.

Get yourself a new ECT. Without one the car can't go into closed loop and must run the fuel ratio from tables. It errs on the rich side for safety. Hence your blackened plugs.
