First why do you think its misfiring? was it scanned and had a DTC code for cylinder misfire / P0303? it appears as if you've changed most of the parts, 5.0 or the 5.7 engine you need a real scanner that can check misfires per 200 revolutions in real time data stream...also a misfire can be caused by a NONE injected cylinder meaning its lean not RICH people forget this!. give me more info .. so I can reply

P0303 CHEVROLET - Cylinder 3 Misfire Detected... Possible causes - Faulty spark plug 3 - Clogged or faulty fuel injector 3 - Faulty ignition coil 3 - Fuel injector 3 harness is open or shorted - Fuel injector 3 circuit poor electrical connection - Ignition coil 3 harness is open or shorted - Ignition coil 3 circuit poor electrical connection - Insufficient cylinder 3 compression - Incorrect fuel pressure - Intake air leak... The P0303 code means that the cylinder 3 is misfiring or is randomly misfiring. Start by checking for intake leaks an if no leaks are found the next step is to replace the spark plugs on cylinder 3. If the problem persist more tests needs to be done to diagnose problem, like a compression test on the cylinders... Engine Cylinder 3 is Misfiring.. Possible symptoms - Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light) - Lack/loss of power - Hard start - Engine hesitation

Yeah the code is 303 installed new plugs And wires and spider injectors fuel pressure is good I don't honk its possible but could the timing cause the two hard codes p0300 and p0303 she runs great very quiet no sign of miss a tiny I mean tiny hesitation at start I need to get a more detailed scan now that the light has come back on

No, timing does not cause a miss-fire. You actually have a random miss-fire by the looks of it. po300 is random, po303 is a miss in cylinder #3 now. Here are some things to check....P0300 CHEVROLET - Cylinder Misfire Detected Random Cylinders... Possible causes - Faulty spark plug (s) - Faulty ignition coil (s) - Clogged or faulty fuel injector (s) - Intake air leak - Fuel injectors harness is open or shorted - Fuel Injectors circuit poor electrical connection - Ignition coils harness is open or shorted - Ignition coils circuit poor electrical connection - Insufficient cylinders compression - Incorrect fuel pressure...........P0303 CHEVROLET - Cylinder 3 Misfire Detected.... Possible causes - Faulty spark plug 3 - Clogged or faulty fuel injector 3 - Faulty ignition coil 3 - Fuel injector 3 harness is open or shorted - Fuel injector 3 circuit poor electrical connection - Ignition coil 3 harness is open or shorted - Ignition coil 3 circuit poor electrical connection - Insufficient cylinder 3 compression - Incorrect fuel pressure - Intake air leak.............../ pretty much the same code.
