Check the wiring coming out of the coil pack going into the harness, there might be a fray or a spot grounding out. wrong spark plugs are NOT going to cause this problem. I don't know if this pertains to you, but most of us tuners in the focus world just use the motorcraft plugs. Unless you are going to boost your car for track driving, or drag strips, there is no reason to get iridium plugs or anything along those lines.

In 90% of the cases I have seen on the ford focus with burning coils is shorted wires on the harness by the EGR tube under the coil itself.
