what about plug wires? not sure if that model has spark plug wires or direct ignition. could also be a bad o2 sensor. any other codes thrown? or just the misfire code?

Yes it did throw out a O2 sender code and I thought it mite be a plugged cat. It has cool pals on each plug and electronic throttle.
