I figured the JB4 was the culprit with the misfire, or at least had some sort of play into whatever it is that went bad to cause the misfire. As soon as I put it on map 0, it was idling a lot better. Can't decide if I'm going to sell the JB4 and get COBB, or what I'm going to do next. I still have downpipes to install on it so I guess I'm going to keep it for a while longer and switch out some things

Angerman if you've already swapped out coils and plugs, valve cleaning would be a good place to go next. Not cheap I know Or perhaps you have a leaky injector, not too common but it happens. Ugh just thinking about misfires makes my head spin.
I'm just looking for options that are better than the stock OEM crap. I think it might be an injector, because I was running E85 for a good two thousand miles - probably clogged up or something. Yea, I'm going to get a valve cleaning soon...maybe next two thousand miles, or when I get more money saved after this fiasco
