Is there anymore infomation you can tell me about it? Could be multiple things.... check engine light on?/codes. Check plugs,and wires first. Try getting a spray bottle of water and spray over engine and look for arcing in the air.

engine miss sounds like a spark plug wire on the wrong coil on the distributer, lights going out would mean you have too much power going to something (or at least more power than your alternator can put out, which commonly happens with subs running high watts, because of too much current draw.)

check engine light is on for cam postioning sensor
