mac , sounds like you are changing plugs due to a new performance "problem" or was it supposed to be a maint. interval replacement and NOW you have this issue AFTER the install ?? Also a little confusion in your first sentence @ "didn't start up with our it was sluggish " , if there was something additional there . And are you saying that an attempted BOSCH install - done first was very unsatisfactory - causing you to " Redo" with the NGK IR 's ? And is the "misfire" just a one cyl. ? ALL ? or specifically which one - because if it's using a "Coil-Pack" (type Ign.)and one got damaged during the repair somehow , then you can swap the "named" cyl.'s Pack w/another one ,instead of diving in & uninstalling plugs (which probably have "Crush" washers - are supposed to be a "one time crush"
) Many times the pulling and "maneuvering of plug-wires and if 'n this case Coil-Pack wires & connecors - old / brittle wires can easily get damaged and may have to be tested w/multimeter - ie. "Ohmed-Out" for Hi-volt.plug wires &. "continuity" for Lo-volt Coil Pack wiring. G T 2/22/2018
