    If the miss fire is consistent on cold startups.
    Might try testing for vacuum leak on the intake

    By the way, do not forget that the air intake is also selected based on the brand of engine. That is why it is necessary to choose it very carefully, so that there would not be any complaints and comments about the fact that it is somehow crooked and so on. For example, I read about Best Cold Air Intake For 6.0 Vortec and it helped me to decide when I needed an air intake, which was exactly what I needed. So keep your eyes open.

    Swap injectors with another cylinder, then compression and leakdown. Any coolant loss?

    Update. So I swapped injectors. Issues came back. But since its been warm the issue hasnt came back in a week. I will keep my eye out but no coolant leaks. Car is completely stock.

    New issue is that after I get off the throttle the car goes into Open Loop Drive and lunges me forward for a second. It might be a throttle position sensor issue because I did open the thottle body flap and wiped it down. Tired to relearn the thottle body but issue is still there. Might have to buy a new thottle body
