denso iridiums are the concesus best so far.

however, getting a stock sparkplug will work fine (celicas come with iridium sparkplugs already)

Misfires are loud (explosion/popping sound) and your engine kind of knocks back. this is what happened in my other vehicle cause my spark plugs were not hooked up right, but i think your problem is with your "Lift" bolts since you are saying you lost power. Try searching the forum on the topic, it will explain everything on it.
