Question oil on plug threads after HP blower cam install

After the install, car seems to have a miss in it and it threw a check engine light. Im curious to see what code it spits out at me. Also, my plugs look black....maybe too rich? On the theads of the plugs you can see the oil. Install was done by a good mech. at the ford place. Any ideas?

Are you sure its oil and not anti-seize? Is it oily or greasy? If its thick and greasy its just anti-seize.

no, its oil. I replaced the plugs last night and its driving really bad. going down the road, you can feel the miss....its pretty bad. maybe its too rich and fouling the plugs, but im concerned about the oil on the plugs. im gonna have them run the codes on monday for the check engine light and see what it says. it looks like im going all the way to alabama to get it tuned at jms. no one here in texas can do the autologic anymore. I may call Steve at Houston Performance, but I doubt he will want to fool with a procharger............
