Just stuck the stock ones in for shits, gapped them to .30 still no luck. Even at 3.5K I'm getting sputtering. In both stick and auto.

The jeep sat for about 2 months with me soft driving it about 2 days. Then put the transmission/stall/fuel system in. Just checked the fuel system again. Set my light to come on at 50 psi, never came on. I can watch regulator's gauge and light at the same time in the driveway, light switch is right on the money. It had idle problems before tranny/stall/fuel system in which it felt like it drops a cylinder and then catches back up.

No misfire codes or any codes for that matter after changing two coils out.

I also noticed right before the tranny shifts at mid rpms, it sometimes feels like it cuts all cylinders then shifts then kicks in again.
