I gave it a try again this WE and almost immediately got a misfire in cyl 6. I will exchange the coil as well tmrw BUT I wanted to know why it could be that I start getting a misfire only after switching to the v401 maps?
The 4.01 maps are slightly more aggressive than the 301 maps so it's possible that the extra stress pushed the coil/plug/injector over the edge. However, if that's the case then the coil/plug/injector was on it's way out anyway.
