If you only have 1k miles on the plugs they should be good. Are you saying within the 1k you already regapped?

Somethings not right there. I would definitely double check the plugs and coils.

Yes I already regapped them. Out of the box they were 0.025-26 so I didn't adjust them. I started having this issue, so I pulled them and two were around 0.030.

I just installed RS3 coils the other week, so I don't think it's those. I might look into a different brand plug.
