Default Spark Plugs wet with gas after sitting

It takes somewhere between 20-24 hours and if i pull my plugs they are wet with gas and it seems like enough gas to almost kinda clean them off. if i check them earlier they look fine and they are not wet. They will continue staying wet for days or i have never seen them dry. So i was wondering if this might be normal with 450's dsm's or do i need to yank them and have them redone? Maybe fuel presure too, it is a stock pump and regulator. All 4 of them are like that. The car does sit days at a time. This couild be a reason i have to lean out with the AFC so much due to the pintels not seating. Well, if any one else has run into this problem, let me know and what you did for a repair. Maybe i don't know what the H i am talkingabout too!!

Well i guess i got some crappy ones, i got them from some shady dude, so i guess what do i need to do to fix this issue, replace or get rebuilt (if that can be done for this issue?)

So its gonna cost 116 american dollars to have the injectors redone, with a 5% chance one or all may have to be replaced. Does anyone have any other options or advice for me or should i just take them in and pay the money and hope for the best?

So i will clear up some stuff here, i just bought my first laptop used off ebay, that was my first step before i start doing anything with the ecu. My next step is obd1, ostrich, harness, crome, but i don't have the cash right now and i am not going to yank the afc and sell it first. I will sell it later when i have my ecu done. And what you said has nothing to do with the injectors leaking when it sits for a day or more. But thank you for your opinion!!

I will hook up my fuel gauge and drop the presure just to see maybe what kind of presures they aren't holding. If they stop leaking when the presure is relieved then i will do that for a while. Yeah probably right, i will run these for now and when i come accross extra bucks i will buy some more. I think i would rather save money for ecu setup. Thank GOD i am not married and have no kids.
