enigne has bad miss

I have a miss in my car when ever I give it gas.
it idles finebut when i rev it ,it starts cutting out.
I can drive the car fine if I eas into the throttle.

its boosted 10psi precision kit dyno tune with SCT

The airfilter was a cai up in the fender with a suck though maf
I moved it to under the hood up highto keep water off the filter
acouple days later it would miss for a slip sec. when I would hit it
wof and go away.I put the maf and piping back way it was when the car was dyno'ed.I've changed the plugs and wire and coil pack.

I removed my tps it feel apart when I removed it.the car is a 2000zx3 5speed

I replace the ica because it was leaking air badused one one off a different yr focus,dont know if is the cause.

Any ideas???

I had a extra tps of a auto TB and used it and it still isnt right.
Could it be the wrong tps.

Hook up your scanning and check the TPS and make sure it is reading correctly

Check the Elec. wires going into your coil

Take the tune out if it would run before tuning and rev it to see if it revs ok with out the tune DO NOT DRIVE IT , Just rev it enough for testing the misfire

Check the MAF voltage a bad MAF will do this

Your scan tool will tell you a lot as to what is going on

check the elec. supply plug for the coil. the wires have a history of being too short in the harness and they crack where they join the plug. ditto on the TPS.

My dad bought a nice gateway laptop for ~$700 brand new. He was looking at Dells too...just a thought. They have some sort of rebate/ deal going on right now, check it out.

I haven't had much luck with HP. My Pc has been thru a couple mobos and is messed up again. Good luck curing the misfire. I had a bad one but it was just plugs.
