Tricky one sriman as it could be several things at fault. When were the plugs last changed... could be as simple as needing a set of these. It could be an O2 sensor or it could be the MAF sensor as these have a reputation as being a little fragile on this engine. Is the older coil pack you've fitted definitely working properly - did it come off a car that was running correctly? I have a suspicion it will be your MAF - if you end up buying one make sure it's a genuine part as many of the cheap ones on a well known auction site are cheap copies. Good luck and let us know how you get on.
