Default Spark plugs keep fouling out? car kees dying.

so yesterdy i drove my car around town. going to class..not beatying on it..hit boost a few times but not like going full throttle and going all out on my motor. i let it sit for a few hours go to start it and its bogging and misfiring. i get new spark plugs in the next day drove it around for a few just to test it and it was fine..then let it sit for about 6 or so hours. went to start it up to go out and it boigs again and just dies. why do my spark plugs keep dying? i used ngk oem integra plugs. btw its a 94 LS motor with stock head and built block. turbo setup...sc34 turbo. i had this problem awhuiiillee ago but just switched sprk plugs and i was good to go. anyhelp is appreciated. thanks

I just read your first post again and noticed you said you're running stock specs NGK plugs.
Pick up a set of colder spark plugs from your tuner, gapped at about .030
