Could be right on both counts, I would have the exhaust system backpressure tested first, the reason is that you stated that you had a misfire on 6 and 8 it could have dumped enough raw fuel to overheat the catalysts and cause a melt down internally so your engine cannot get rid of exhaust efficiently. Exhaust pressure should run around 4 to 5 LBS.

could also be the crankshaft position sensor. I had the same problem and I replace it and it worked just fine after
