Replace all 8 COPs(one at a time if you wish) and this problem will go away. Use a tuner to read DTC's to help narrow the cylinder down.

Well if you do it right you won't have any problems

And if you do it right, it will look great and be well worth it.

+1. Took me 6 hours total to clean mine up. Used a combination of duct tape and saran wrap to cover up COPS, alternator, battery, etc. Used a garden hose to wash it down. Say no to high pressure water in your engine bay. It really isn't an issue if you prep the engine properly.

Use WD-40 to clean your engine spray it on a rag and wipe it down. Thats the only thing I clean mine with. Works great!!!

day 2 it was a lot better... today - day 3 still there just not too bad... low and high rpms only. Coil # 3 I can unplug and idle does not change a bit like when other 7 are unplugged.
