I will definetly do more of a 15-20k spark plug change as it is a really easy DIY and worth keeping the engine in absolutely brand new functioning
The Torco race fuel concentrate does turn the plugs a nice orange but I don't think it damages them at all. I know guys with Shelby GT500s and C5/6 Vettes that are in the 600-800rwhp range that use Torco race fuel concentrate to probably a higher level than you did with no detriment. From my understanding the plugs start to lose efficiency even without the fuel concentrate at around the 18-20k mark anyway.
The Torco stuff is pretty good...
