Themyst had a valve cover gasket issue, which probably had some PCV implications, causing a misfire. I think if I see a lot of liquid oil down in the port when I do this car's carbon clean, it will be a sign to pull the valve cover and check the gasket or replace the whole cover. Won't be the first time we've found a defective N54 cover. I also bought a digital manometer to check the PCV and crankcase pressure.
