So I noticed about 2 weeks ago it was not shifting correctly (so I thought) or getting up to speed as per usual. I pulled into the local autozone and it was a cylinder 5 misfire. Monday when I stopped back by to check and see if changing the coil on 5 helped, I now had a cylinder 1 misfire. So 2 misfires total, and no I’m not sure how may times it did misfire. It is noticeable now, can’t accelerate at all hardly. It does however idle fine. One other thing I have recently noticed is after I shut the engine off after running, it sounds like it’s struggles to start back up.Sea foam wont clean injectors for ish, it is great at what it does, it cleans combustion chambers through the vac lines better then anything, you want a PEA cleaner, I'd suggest redline si-1, but I am doubting it is injectors at this point. It is possible, but I'd say less likely then some other ones, good news it would be semi easy to deal with this. I would do sea foam through vac lines and redline si-1 full bottle in gas, do not use more, just one bottle. Did it only throw the cyl 1 misfire once? Do you have any number of times it through each specific cylinder, many times number 5 and 1 time on one?
You dont need to replace plugs, you just need to swap plugs, while swapping you can see condition. If you already bought plugs mise well hold on to them in case you do the cam, nice time to do plugs then. I's just swap 5 with anything and see if 5 keeps coming up or it moves. Doing a lot of these things like cleaning injectors and combustion chamber, no need to do this with new plugs, those are hard on plugs.

Once again thank all of you for the help and tips. I will most definitely keep this post updated and report back with my findings to help the next man up!
