Is it throwing any codes? My first guesses would be CCV pipe cracked, some other vacuum leak (valve cover gaskets), or coils.

Try drive it and see if it gets better with revs then it might be a bad coil or since u changed ur spark plugs maybe u didn't plug the coils right or all the way

It was before replacing the spark plugs, drove it a lot before these happened at higher rpms (didn't get better or worst)
No error codes, scanned with launch scan tools also no errors on engine or transmission

Yeah, of go with a vacuum leak of some sort. My CCV pipe was cracked at the bottom of the corrugation, right at the connector near cylinder 5.

Couldn't see the crack, but the pipe crumbled when I removed it
