The FIREWALL side are 1,3,5, Starting from the belts location.

Do you know whether or not you have an aluminum block? Also, is that # 6 a firing order for your spark plugs/boots? If you have an aluminum block, the block has to be 100 % cool. Don't even start it before changing a spark plug. It is very easy to misthread when replacing causing shavings to get inside and then you basically have the problem all over again. You also need to put dileletic grease as well as anti-seize on the plug or boot. Any time you change plugs/boots on an aluminum block, be sure that you keep the hole covered as not to get any foriegn object inside. Also, make sure that the gap is correct even though it is supposed to be when you purchase it. It is usually a good idea to change all your plugs at the same time instead of just one if you are trying to trouble shoot, to save $$ like the rest of us. Good Luck, I hope this helps. Let me know, OK?

Check your alternator see if you have a drop in voltage on your tack,then it is the problem.I too was a victim of high price tune up and still had a problem with a misfire.and cover your coil pack with a piece of rubber water run of onto your power pack .Another thing is to use a silicone spray on all wires.

I investigated this for over an hour while tossing things around in my head and truly think that you need to have your O2 censor checked along with your converter. One probable cause to your misfire could very well stem from your catalytic converter due to an O2 faulty etc.etc. Why not try a smog shop before tearing that engine apart any further and replacing any unnecessary gaskets. Thats a tight engine in my opinion and unless you really mistreat it, I would bet on it at race day. Have you recently been in a fender bender? Let us know cause that might change my advice.
