What is it soaked in oil or coolant? It could be the intake manifold or worst case head gasket on the driver side. But first things first what is it soaked in?

Sounds like the intake manifold is leaking from that side. I would check the seals from the coolant crossover where the thermostat sits they can leak from there right into the valley to the plugs. I would say try to find a trail of coolant. Normally white looking residue would help start a search for a leak. If anything else run the car while with a flashlight look only on the driver side for Any leaks as well as the smell of coolant will help pinpoint the source of the problem

If its a new motor there wouldnt be any leaks. Im just trying to help by pointing u in the direction to find a leak. It has to be leaking from either the manifold or the crossover or which i completelyforgot to mention the heater hose that runs under the manifold directly by the driver side which would also spray coolant onto the plugs

Take a flashlight and look under the manifold for coolant

Either the intake manifold is broken or the gasket is leaking.

I can see the plastic coolant crossover plain as day. Your new motor has a non-updated PI intake that is a known issue. Also just because it is new doesn't mean it won't leak or can't leak. I'd yank that intake and put an updated one on with the metal crossover and go from there.

If it is every plug on the drives side, it sounds like an intake problem way more than a head gasket problem.
