    Mine is doing the same. My fuel pressure is correct. I put a new camshaft position sensor and still have the same misfire. Verrry frustrating!! Mechanic said maybe the brain is at fault.

    it can not be a push rod or piston or any other mechanical part if you have good compression which you do

I've got the same problem - turned out to be the CSFI (a.k.a. the fuel spider assembly). GM put these piece-of-trash units in their trucks from 1996-2000 and they get coked-up with junk from the gas tank so the central electronic unit will actually shut off the cylinders one-by-one. Get it replaced - don't even bother trying to get it cleaned. It's expensive either way. But by getting it replaced you'll actually be upgrading it since the original units are no longer sold (wonder why)... You can get them cheapest from, or you can Google "CSFI to MPFI conversion."

check for corrosion in the connections

injectors cause more misfires than plugs and associated electric do

My 1996 chevy 1500 has a missfire i have

Well, First i would have replaced all of the spark plugs and the wires, Then moved to the cap or rotor second, but in that case, did you check the spark plugs and wires, when was the last time they were changed? Maybe they were changed already and that's why you when straight to the distro? Is there a computer code for a misfire, or it feels like a misfire when it's running?
