I didn't see plug leads on that list?

Could be damp, true. Have you checked all connections? Leads and also at the coil. If you have leccy contact cleaner wash out the plugs (the three at the coils) and see if that helps. 

When you fitted the coild did you clean off the earth plate behind?

All caused by S75 LCF back in 2002, a mustard yellow GT3, and someone on here's got her.....

yes im thinking moisture related, i will clean the plugs and contacts, the o2 sensor was a genuine part, the car would have been in the garage but some bastard upped the rent by 1000% so the car now has a cover on it and sits outside until i find another place for it . it seemed to struggle getting boost, but cant see any splits in the pipe

as others have said its sounds like moisture, either in the spark plug wells or maybe a split in the silicon on the Ht leads
