Pump (190lph)
fuel Filter

ECT
MAP (its a SD not MA)
TPS adjusted to .96 (not replaced)
02s (bkk Extensions)

well for one have you done a compression test on all cylinders?? that'll rule out an internal problem.....also un plugging an injeector one by one can locate the prob cylinder.. by finding the cyl where no load change is detected when injector is un plugged..same can be done with ignition wires

the coil and tfi will make them all run bad or not at all.
the dizzy pip sensor wouldnt let it run at all either, you replaced the cap, rotor and plugs so i dont see that being the problem if it runs.

pull a spark plug with it running, if the miss changes- then that cyl doesnt have the problem, if it stays the same, thats your problem cyl.

if a valve was not seating properly it would cause a miss.
i just helped a guy at work w/ his lightning. he knew he had a miss and he was going to put a built motor in and get his intake ported. well when we pull the intake, #6 intake port had alot of carbon/oil buildup in the intake port, thats where his problem was at.
