thats weird.....youd think it would run better with the new plugs.......are they gapped the same?

try gapping them to like .027.......maybe that little closer gap will fix the problem.

.030 should be fine on the gap. Make sure all the plug wires are on good, and the plugs are tight.

Did you just recently fill up at a different gas station? I would also try tightening up the gap. I have to run .026-.028 or that happens.
