Replaced plugs wires and engine runs worse. Could the coil pack be going out?

That's certainly possible!... However I think you should re-check the plug wire firing order to be sure there're not crossed... Also easy to break//crack the 'white porcelain' spark plug insulator when tightening... OEM coil is numbered for cylinder id.. Passenger side cylinders are 1--2--3.... Drivers side cylinders are 4--5--6.... Front to back... See below:
ENGINE:
. 1--2--3 > passenger side
|| < < front of engine
. 4--5--6 > drivers side
COIL PACK:
back
3-o---o-4
2-o---o-6
1-o---o-5
front
