Default surging problem

New user here did a good bit of searching since getting the car yesterday. 03 gt auto. with around 50k miles on it.
Car is surging at 4k rpm. Also had oil in the spark plug well 1. not alot but enough to make me worried. Ill be getting valve cover and upper manifold seals in about an hour and have already picked up new plugs and wires.

The car had misfire cylinder 1 code which i cleared and hasn't returned. But also havent driven it much since.

Just wondering if it sounds like it could be another issue. There is also a crack in the hose from the cover to the oil catch spong thing.. If there are any other parts i should be getting or start with what i have.

Thanks for the input.

Need to add this cars been sitting for a year. like spider web and leaves in every nook and crany kind of sitting.

EDIT well i replaced the plugs. wires, spark plug seals, valve cover gasket, intake gasket and the car is still stumbling/surging at 4k rpm any help would be greatly appreciated.,

well im kicking myself in the ass because i just realized its the rev limiter kicking in causing the "surging" i thought was happening.
03 gt auto.
