does this look normal?
I know they should be a dark brown and not black...this is kind of hard to tell if it is normal color or is it too black on bottom or on the bottom?

actually those plugs are relatively new. The ski kind of sank and it ingested water. The dealer fixed it and it runs great...but it was blowing some smoke for a while (white to grey). I figured it was just burning up a little leftover water residue...no smoke now, runs great..but these plugs may have 5 hrs on them...the mid to top of threads is clean as a whistle..but the bottom seems a little dark..

come on guys!
So do these look rich??? anybody?
They are not so dark that I can say they are for sure. Anybody have any suggestions on why they are so dark for being only a month old?

They look like it was idling for a while before you pulled them.
You have to close the throttle and kill the ignition while wide open to get a proper plug read.

Thank you guys. The engine runs great, no loss of power, no strange noises...I just saw they looked a little dark and got a little worried....
If I was running rich it could be clogged air intake, jacked injectors...and all that is getting replaced so I am just going to bolt up the performance parts and see how she runs in april....maybe march depending on how ballzy I am feeling

They are a little oily. That is probably from the the water ingestion/clean out/oil fog that the delear did. The white/grey smoke was likely a result of buring the oil residue as water residue is mostly steam and doesn't travel very far in the air like oil smoke does. They definitely don't look rich.
I wouldn't worry much about it. Run them for a while and if it starts to misfire, change 'em out.
