Default Testing coils and Ignitor

Okay well Im kinda stumped on my MS It has ran fine for 2 moths then I sent to braineack to have EBC fixed and a few other thing hi-res included got it back ran fine for 2-3 weeks no problems everything was working, got sick and didnt start the car for 4 days maybe 5? but went to go to work and the battery was dead jumped it with my roomates car and it fired up and ran like hell lean as crap anything i messed with in MegaTune had no affect on it reminds me of when I washed the engine bay once and fouled the plugs I'm at a loss on what to do? one day after starting it when it was messed up for some reason I touched the ignitor and it was on fire! So my ? is how do I test the coils and Ignitor I put a screwdriver on all the coils and turned key on and It sparked and shocked me but would the car even start if the ignitor was shot??? any advice on what to check sorry if theres any grammar errors wasnt my subject and apologize for the length just telling ya the story

well pretty much the simplest thing on earth put in some 1$ new spark plugs lol I guess the ones I bought a month ago were fouled??? I had previously taken them out and tested them up against the tow hook and they all sparked not good enough i guess?
