Plugs and oil + Alternator!

Okay so where to start. I got a 2003 Ford Focus SVT, just replaced the Coilpack and wires, with MSD Coilpack and Massive wires 8.5mm both very red and pretty, Took plugs out and realize they're basically bathing in oil down there, I know this is m vaule cover gasket going to replace that, with a FelPro top block engine gasket kit unless anyone else can suggest other buts Felpro was the best in the fox body world guessing there good here. I've agure with Ford many times that I think my Alternator is going bad but they said no. My headlights dim, clock, and dash all dim. Brand new battery last week<Was stock battery, amazing huh?> New Coilpack and wires, only thing it could be is the alternator isn't that correct?< I didn't buy the coilpack thinking it was causing my flickering problem> Guess I'm just asking because I'm 90% sure its the Alternator, also is it useless to put new plugs in until I fix my Vaule seal and cover gasket?
