I have changed coil/plugs/cam sensor. new wires...2 weeks old or so...
Misfire in all rpms, at all points of throttle, and at idle. I'm lookin' for a vac leak but no luck so far. I'm out of spray.
No codes except for a 538...I didn't gun my throttle during the dynamic test.
reminds me of a bad wire...'cause it gets worse under boost...but is there even when the gague is in vac.

Well, when I changed wires on my 89 I accidently swapped #5 & #6 wires on the coil pack. They go 5-6-4 on that side instead of 6-5-4. I knew that and still swapped them. Made a hell of a difference.

I dunno but maybe a head gasket....

Rob, I still want those A/C parts. We need to get together about them. I'll give you a call in the next week or so.

I evidently bought some bad MC wires...I replaced them and I'm back to business as usual...
I'm not too far on a rebuild and I made sure the guy got some GOOD head gaskets...I'm hoping those don't die anytime soon.
