Does anyone happen to know the cylinder numbering for the V8? I have a misfire in cylinder 3 and 7 and full throttle and i'm trying to do some trouble-shooting.

none unfortunately, it may have been a vacuum leak. I poked around a bit and inspected the spark plugs for the cylinders that were mis-firing and then tried to replicate the problem and couldn't so maybe just fooling around fixed it? I'm not usually that lucky though so i doubt it...

Might want to check the air intake too, I've run into misfires as the hose has wiggled off of the air box on occasion

It actually appears as though the process of taking the coil packs off and putting them back on tight may have alleviated the problem, as i have been unable to re-produce it since my fiddling around.
