so today i was running to hardware store and i felt a misfire, then it continued to misfire. cel started flashing, putted into store, checked under hood. everything visible looked ok. checked all four coil packs, 1st coil pack tip was bend up some, had to bend it some to get back over plug, others seemed fine other than maybe little rust coloring in it. here are my codes.

im confused ont he fuel level to low, Cyl 1 was the one with the bent up ends. someone told me to gap my plugs to .28 i think because of the FrankenTurbo but i had not done it yet. stock injectors, stock fuel pump
i know the 1st o2 sensor is because of test pipe but never gotten the 2nd one till now. cel has been off, comes on every now and then for day or 2 then goes back off, figured it was just the o2 sensor.

1. can improper gaping cause the coil pack to go?
2. does the no activity for o2 mean it died?

Replace cyl 1 coil pack, cleared codes. Started up and at idle its no longer missing, rev'd it some no misfire. Gonna try to drive it to work in morning.

.28, or .028?

Yes, too large a gap stresses the coils.

Get your secondary o2 sensor written out of your tune and never worry about it again. But it seems like your secondary o2 sensor is toast. Don't worry about it. Just get it coded out and keep it in there.
