Default Cylinder 5 Misfire...

As the title says, I'm getting a cylinder 5 misfire. Change my spark plugs, wires, cap and rotor. Still getting the same code, so I did a compression test and got around 150psi on all my cylinders while my spark plugs had no oil residue. Well to did but very little but no on the electrode but on the rim of the plug seems weird to me as most oil is on the electrode(but not on cylinder 5). Any ideas? Thanks!

You could be cross firing. Which causes a misfire read this TSB:

Why exactly do I need to this? I'm assuming the wires crossfire or something to that affect and mess up the whole firing order...

Because a crossfire is considered a misfire to the PCM. Also this TSB covers all 5.2 and 5.9L engines and the 3.9L. My engine is one of the very few 5.2L's that are excluded because it's in a van. But just re-route the wires and if it's still mis-firing then we have atleast knocked out one possible reason.
