    Did you ever diagnose the misfire? Bad plug or coil?

    99% sure it's clogged cats as there is a significant loss of power at all rpms now.

    The engine sounds "rough" as in it's struggling to breathe.

    The exhaust pulses coming out the muffler feel weak, but I really need a known good car to compare it with.

    My headers are coming back from the ceramic coater in about 2 weeks, so I'm not going to bother with pulling plugs or anything.

    Just noticed that I haven't really wrenched on the car since March of last year. Is she getting reliable on me??

    That's a good feeling - just to enjoy the drive rather than to have downtime due to reliability problems.

    Was the fuel pump @210k the second one (i.e. 1 per ~100k miles), or was it preventative since it had 210k?

    According to the Carfax, the last time it was replaced was at 105k, over 5 years ago now. It may have been good for another few years, but I'd rather not roll the dice.

    Nice. I agree, I think it's a ~100k mile maintenance item.
