you might have intake gasket problems and that is a pretty easy fix. Lots of info about that over at #1 Son's place.

Or consider going to regular AC Delco R45TS's and cut back the ground electrode. This exposes the
spark to the air/fuel mixture 'better' and is similar to boy racer 'indexing' of the plugs.

If you stick with expensive plugs, this will remove the ground electrode's 'puck'. Plus, a
waste to use expensive plugs if it's fouling and have to replace before they wear out.

I'm in that cycle on my 1980 Silverado C10's 350. Think it's also intake gasket leak, but not able
to do that kind of work (hurt my neck and can't/won't lean/lift anything heavy for a while).
Takes about 15 minutes to change these 4 plugs
and buy'm on sale.
