They were used? They won't tell us much then, but I'd still like to see them.

They were used for about 6 miles haha.

They are the autolite 605 (1 range cooler) gapped to .060. I will pull them and put some pics up.

I know the autolites are equivalant to the tr55 but i may try a different gap. I know i am seeing a misfire code sometimes but was told i would with the cam

Cleaned the MAF, it isnt that.

Pulled the plugs, the first front one closest to the TB was really white the other 2 are white but not as white. The back one closest to the TB was greyish, the other 2 were blackish. I am going to go outside and take a video of the plugs (pics will down come out, they are very blurry). Also on 2 of the plugs the porcalien parts are broken, would that effect anything??

I think i am just going to buy new plugs.

Replace all 6 plugs. Gap as reccommended. Any chips or cracks are out.

You have evidence of running lean on one by your description. Remember that white one. And what cylinder it'* on. It may suggest an injector issue.

I just did a video of the ends, and it is uploading. I am just going to buy all new plugs. I was told to gap at .060 does everyone agree or is there any other opinions?

Also, i have another question. Andrew made that homemade HV3 for me (cut down runners and used his scientific calculations and what not). Could those plugs closest to the TB be lean because of the way the air is entering the runners now? Just an idea (being i am the first to try this).
