I agree. Mis-fire is more accurately described as mis-detonation. It's not always necessarily the plug and/or wire. A bad injector can supply an inadequate fuel spray/supply and result in mis-detonation.

(Think of it as a butane lighter and a can of starting fluid. The butane lighter being the spark-plug, and the starting fluid being the fuel supply. No butane lighter...no fireball. No starting fluid...no fireball. Need to have them both working properly.)

I was just waiting to see if the OP got back with the results of the wire check before proceeding.
