do you have ignition wire gappers? a lot of people overlook this and this actually stopped my misfiring. how old are your ignition wires? what kind of plugs?

I had the same issue. When does yours misfire? Is it only under certain loads\boost, or is it just random whenever? My car did the same thing because my plugs were bad\gapped improperly and couldnt handle sparking under the higher load\boost. Also maybe want to check coil and whatnot. There could also be a grounding issue. just some ideas.
