If you have the wrong leads going to the wrong spark plugs, then you will have a spark when the cylinder is somewhere other than where it should be, which is at the top of the compression stroke ready to drive the piston down and provide power. If you can start your car, it will be running very rough, have no real power at all and your gas mileage will be measured in gallons per mile. You are also running the risk of serious internal damage to the very expensive valves, so I suggest you fix it immediately.
